Upholding a Legacy of Immigrant Justice

In 2021, we established the ILJ Network Endowment Fund—formerly the NJFON Endowment Fund. This fund helps make a lasting impact that ensures the long-term financial well-being of our network in your lifetime and beyond. Under the stewardship of the Texas Methodist Foundation (with over $740 million in assets under management) and guided by the principles of servanthood, integrity, and competence—your gift to the ILJ Network Endowment Fund will honor your generosity.

I became involved and continue to support the ILJ Network because I’ve seen through my own immigration legal practice just how complicated and difficult it can be for immigrants to navigate our immigration legal system. ILJ sites provide the kind of compassionate, expert legal services that immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers need to face these challenges in their immigration journeys. Cases often take multiple years, and the ILJ Network Endowment Fund means the ongoing resources will be there to see them through.

While ensuring a strong, long-term foundation for our work, this fund also serves to meet our greatest needs as they emerge and evolve, granting the Immigration Law & Justice Network the flexibility to be responsive to the changing needs and circumstances of the immigrants we serve and our growing network of sites across the country.

ILJ Network is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and as such, contributions to the ILJ Network Endowment Fund are eligible for tax benefits. We strongly encourage you to consider consulting with your tax advisors when considering a gift to the fund.
