The Two Components of Freedom for All Americans
Freedom for All Americans includes two separate entities – Freedom for All Americans and Freedom for All Americans Education Fund. We are working toward our mission of securing comprehensive non-discrimination protections for all LGBTQ Americans through these two separate organizations in order to meet legal requirements and complete the range of work necessary to build toward a national victory. This website refers to the two organizations collectively under the name Freedom for All Americans.
Although there may be some overlap in the work done by each entity in furtherance of the goals of the campaign, certain activities are done by one organization and not the other. This is primarily focused around the lobbying work completed by Freedom for All Americans.
Supporters may make a contribution to Freedom for All Americans, Freedom for All Americans Education Fund, or both. A contribution to either organization will be used to advance comprehensive non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people – but each organization will only use the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the specific activities it conducts as part of the overall mission to win non-discrimination.
Freedom for All Americans engages in legislative lobbying designed to end discrimination in the law at both the state and federal level; under the tax code, it is a 501(c)(4) organization and contributions to this organization, while highly valued, are not tax-deductible. These contributions support our direct advocacy with elected officials and other lobbying. Click here to make a highly valued donation to Freedom for All Americans.
Freedom for All Americans Education Fund is eligible to receive contributions that are tax-deductible as a 501(c)(3) organization, and it is limited by federal law in how much lobbying it can do. Contributions to Freedom for All Americans Education Fund will be used to build broad-based support for LGBT non-discrimination and develop educational, organizing, and advocacy strategies.

Freedom for All Americans does not endorse or provide funding to candidates running for public office and is committed to bipartisan efforts to pass non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ individuals.
