Ways to Give

Join the Justice Corps

The Justice Corps, sustaining contributors to the Texas Civil Rights Project, are an indispensable part of TCRP’s work; they are the front line in the fight for civil rights in Texas!

 

As a member of Justice Corps, your monthly gift sustains the protracted battle to advance civil rights over many years. Justice Corps members’ gifts ensure that the work of targeted legal advocacy continues, so that together we can advance the cause of justice and equity for all Texans.

 

When you join the Justice Corps, becoming a sustaining member of TCRP, you will receive a complimentary bumper sticker, so the diver behind you knows just how committed to civil rights in Texas you really are!

 

Want to gift someone a membership? Simply include their name in the “memo” field, and you’ll get an email with further information.

Make a one-time gift

One-time gifts are a great way to make a statement: “I believe in the work that TCRP does—using legal advocacy to advance civil rights in Texas—and I want to be part of that work!” Your one-time gift ensures we can continue our fight to protect and expand voting rights, challenge the injustices in our broken criminal justice system, and advance racial and economic justice in Texas.

 

You can also make a one-time gift on behalf of someone you think should know more about the great work we do here at TCRP, tirelessly fighting for the civil rights of all Texans. Just include the intended recipient’s contact information in the optional tribute section of the donation form and we’ll thank them for their generous support.

Join Generation Justice

Generation Justice is our new membership-driven initiative. The goal? To ignite the next generation of civil rights leaders, through outreach, advocacy and legal action. By joining Generation Justice you are committing yourself to the fight for civil rights: to expanding voting rights, to challenging the injustices in our broken criminal justice system, and to advancing racial and economic justice in Texas. Through a series of events, programmatic update calls, and networking opportunities with like-minded young people, Generation Justice gives you access to the tools and community you need to be an active participant in the fight for civil rights.

Attend an event

Events are a great way to support TCRP, and to have fun doing it! Throughout the year, we hold receptions, dinners, and other parties for our supporters. Stay in touch to learn more about an event in your city and how you can get involved.

Host a Peer-to-Peer Campaign

Are you passionate about protecting and advancing civil rights in Texas? Do you want to shout it from the rooftops—or your Facebook? One key way you can contribute is to engage your community – run a peer-to- peer (P2P) fundraising campaign, or become a social media influencer and help TCRP challenge systemic injustices in and out of the courts. Our team can provide you with your own personalized donation link, fundraising tools and strategies, and suggested content.

Stock Gifts

Stock gifts might seem unconventional, but they are a great way to partner with TCRP! One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the Texas Civil Rights Project is with a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. Upon receipt we will notify you of the market value of your gift. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.
