All across America, people like you are facing punishment for living out their faith.
The Washington couple who was denied a license as foster parents because they do not want children of the opposite biological sex sharing a bedroom in their home.
The Justice of the Peace in Texas who was threatened with punishment for declining to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies that violated her sincere religious beliefs.
The sidewalk counselors in Chicago who face charges of disorderly conduct and a $500 fine if they approach someone within 50 feet of an abortion facility without government permission.
These three cases are just a few of the dozens of legal battles over religious freedom that are happening in the U.S. right now.
And with just 79 attorneys on staff, you may be wondering how your support of ADF is making a difference in legal matters like these.
The answer is the one-two punch of ADF Allied Attorneys combined with the ADF Grants and Funding Program.
When generous Ministry Friends like you support the Grants and Funding Program, you make it possible to come alongside more than 3,500 Allied Attorneys who can litigate these important cases to victory.
These Allied Attorneys happily donate their own time and resources to take on many of these cases. But oftentimes, they need the funding provided by an ADF grant to make it happen.
Since the founding of ADF, your support has provided more than 3,500 grants to help defend religious freedom!
But in the last year, grant requests have outpaced our ability to meet them.
Your help is needed to expand the Grants and Funding program to meet the growing threats to religious freedom.
And when you do, you can multiply your impact three times!
In recent years, for every $1 Allied Attorneys were given in grants, they’ve donated an average of three times that in their own time and resources. That means every dollar you give toward Grants and Funding can have up to THREE TIMES the impact!
were considering abortion. Then the state tried to censor her.
Winning in court can require a big investment
Many of our most significant legal victories might never have been won without help from our Grants and Funding program. And that includes our victory at the U.S. Supreme Court for Eleanor McCullen a few years ago. You may remember her — she’s the Massachusetts grandmother who could have faced arrest and even jail time for counseling girls and young women on public sidewalks just outside Planned Parenthood.
Winning for Eleanor has literally saved lives. But her story is only one example of how the Grants and Funding program is shifting the outcome of important legal battles — and why your gift today is essential to the fight to defend your religious freedom.
The grants you help provide protect people of faith
The Grants and Funding program has a proven track record of success, including having played an instrumental role in 40 Supreme Court victories.
But religious freedom is not won or lost only at the Supreme Court. It must be defended in local, state, and international cases as well. Just in the last year, the grants you helped provide have supported 61 different cases promoting religious freedom!
- In Phoenix, Arizona, grant funding helped secure the right of a church to expand its faith-based school for autistic students. City officials originally denied the church the permit it needed. But with the help of a grant, an Allied Attorney filed suit, citing evidence of officials’ religious hostility. Praise God the city reversed its decision!
- In Pakistan, a Christian man was charged with blasphemy for allegedly insulting Islam. Authorities threw the innocent man in jail, and he spent the next five years of his life imprisoned. Thankfully, an Allied Attorney, with the help of a grant funded by generous Ministry Friends like you, was able to secure this man’s acquittal and release!
These are just two stories of victories you made possible. But they are also stories of need — stories of freedoms that might have been lost if not for your support and the work of ADF Allied Attorneys.
And there are dozens of stories just like these that need funding right now.
When you give, you’ll make one of the best investments you can to defend religious freedom. Your gift can have up to three times the impact thanks to the donated time and services of dedicated Allied Attorneys.
Your support makes the difference in critical battles
Allied Attorneys are passionate about defending religious freedom. But imagine how powerless many of them would be without your help.
We hate being in the position where we have to turn down a grant request for a case because we don’t have the funds. And we cannot afford to see religious freedom suffer due to the high cost of litigation.
Because of you, when an Allied Attorney finds a desperate client on their doorstep looking for help, they can request funds and strategic support from the ADF Grants and Funding program.
Because of you, Allied Attorneys are empowered to go toe-to-toe with massive, well-funded opponents like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
Because of you, these attorneys are fighting to preserve your essential freedoms and seeking justice for your brothers and sisters in Christ who are being punished for living out their faith!
Please consider giving the very best gift you can today. With God’s blessing (John 15:5), and your faithful prayers and support, we can fight back when our freedoms are threatened — and WIN.
Remember, every $1 you give can have up to three times the impact! Your gift of $50 can have the impact of $150. Your gift of $100 can have the impact of $300!
About Alliance Defending Freedom
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, nonprofit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
ADF was launched in 1994 by 35 ministry leaders, including Dr. James Dobson, Dr. D. James Kennedy, Dr. Bill Bright, and Larry Burkett.
With God’s favor and blessing, ADF has grown from the prayers of those godly leaders to become a major force in the legal battle for religious freedom, winning nearly 80% of our cases, including 13 victories at the U.S. Supreme Court since 2011.
