Tribute Gifts

Do you know someone whose values align with FIRE’s principled stand for civil liberties?

You can make a contribution to FIRE that honors them! You can even commemorate a special occasion (like a marriage or birthday) or gift a friend an annual FIRE membership! You can also donate in memory of a loved one. In each case, we’ll notify who you designate of this special gift and extend all the benefits associated.

You can make a tribute gift using our online donation form. After you make the gift, you will be given the option to write your own note that can be sent either through email or postal mail. 

You can also make a gift by mail, through stock or wire transfer, or by giving us a call at 215-717-3473, and just let us know your gift is being made in tribute.

Help FIRE Grow the Free Speech Movement!

Here at FIRE, we are working to build an America in which people overwhelmingly believe in the right of others to freely express views different from their own and expect their laws, institutions, and society to embody this belief.

Do you know people who share this belief?

Sponsoring a crowdfunding campaign is an excellent way to help FIRE grow our movement dedicated to restoring free speech as both a legal right and a cultural value. With a $25 donation, your friends can become FIRE Members and provide critical support to our efforts while also enjoying special perks like an official FIRE membership card, an annual subscription to our print magazine, invitations to special events, and more.

Whether you choose to set a goal or even match donations, consider hosting a FIRE fundraising campaign to help us welcome new members.

To set up a campaign, complete and submit this form. FIRE's team will set up your campaign, and email it to you within 24 hours. Then, you can share it wherever you like!

Become an Alumni Activist!

Alumni play a crucial role in the fight for campus reform. You can leverage your influence and apply the pressure necessary for change by diverting your annual donation to your alma mater to FIRE instead.

When you make a donation to FIRE in lieu of a gift to a school, FIRE informs the leadership at that institution that until they fully protect individual rights on campus, the school will continue to lose your charitable support.

FIRE wants to work with your alma mater to reform their speech codes and earn a “green-light” rating. We will also extend a helping hand and send along resources to get the job done.

If you wish to make a gift to FIRE in lieu of a gift to a school, contact us to let us know or feel free to mail in this sheet. We’ll handle the rest!
