Each day, our team fights to reunite families, lift barriers to employment and housing, and strengthen communities by supporting small businesses and land trusts. We’re building a more equitable and just Detroit, and we need your help.
DJC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our EIN is 82-2295339. All donations made to DJC are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.
The Detroit Justice Center (DJC) is a non-profit law firm working alongside communities to create economic opportunities, transform the justice system, and promote equitable and just cities.
DJC relies on a broad community of donors to sustain our work. We see the sharing of financial resources as a critical investment in our mission. In addition to financial contributions, our donors share their personal experiences, insights, community relationships and creativity within DJC.
We strive to build strong donor relationships based on clear communication, trust, and a shared vision of justice for all people. We take donor privacy seriously and can work with you to ensure that your needs are met. We will not share or sell any donor’s personal information with anyone else or send mailings or email on behalf of other organizations.
We know that receiving a donation is a financial but also personal investment from each of our donors, and take seriously the responsibility to put each gift to the maximum possible use.
DJC accepts gifts primarily from individuals, foundations, and organizations that share a commitment to our values. We reserve the right to decline gifts from individuals or institutions that advocate viewpoints or take actions that fundamentally contradict those values.
DJC does not generally accept direct corporate donations. However, DJC will consider employee recommended gifts including matching contributions, donor advised funds, employee designations and support from employee sponsored resource and affinity groups. In some specific instances, such as mission-aligned social justice focused funds, DJC may accept or pursue financial contributions or grants from corporations. These considerations are made on a case by case basis with the members of the development team. Considerations above $50,000 are reviewed with and approved by DJC’s Executive Director. Considerations of $250,000 or above are reviewed and approved by DJC’s Executive Director and the DJC Board of Directors.
This policy may be amended from time to time at the Detroit Justice Center’s discretion.
