Support our work through philanthropic giving
Immigrant Justice Corps depends upon philanthropic giving from foundations and individual donors. Donations can be made directly through the website by clicking on the Donate button. We welcome the opportunity to discuss IJC further with you.
If you would like to learn more about donor opportunities, please contact Christa Stewart, Deputy Director.
Immigrant Justice Corps catalyzes the careers of dozens of college and law graduates every year, serves tens of thousands of immigrants, and develops new ways of thinking about and practicing public interest law.
We can’t do any of this without the generosity and support of our supporters and donors. Gifts made to Immigrant Justice Corps are used to solve one of the most entrenched problems facing the country today – the representation crisis facing low-income immigrant families.
How to support our work as a law firm or lawyer
Immigrant Justice Corps is committed to building relationships with the nation’s leading law firms, bar associations and members of the private and public interest bar. We seek law firm and bar association sponsorship of Immigrant Justice Corps Fellows.
IJC stands ready to assist pro bono lawyers in law firms as they undertake immigration cases, assisting with their training pro bono lawyers are critical to the work of IJC in a number of different ways, including assistance with start-up and corporate matters, representing clients in BIA and federal appeals, and co-counseling on systemic litigation.
In addition, IJC recruits and convenes a small cohort of highly accomplished members of the private and public interest bar who wish to volunteer their time and many talents to supporting the work of the IJC in a variety of ways.
These senior lawyers will serve Of Counsel with IJC and may conduct skills training for Justice and Community Fellows, mentor junior lawyers, assist with the development of IJC’s model and structure, or carry their own immigration cases, among many other possibilities.
Most importantly, Of Counsel attorneys will be ambassadors of IJC to the legal community at large, helping to raise awareness about the immigrant representation crisis and engage their colleagues in developing new strategies to ameliorate it.
If you would like to learn more about pro bono opportunities with Immigrant Justice Corps or about the Of Counsel program, please contact Christa Stewart, Deputy Director.
support our work as a college or law school
Immigrant Justice Corps recruits the country’s most talented and committed college and law students to be our Justice and Community Fellows. The staff and professors at law schools and colleges are critical to ensuring that happens. IJC staff would be happy to speak to you and your students about fellowship opportunities and the rich program of professional development activities that IJC provides to participants.
We would also love your suggestions for the best way to reach future fellows on college and law school campuses across the country.
If you are interested in learning more about how students at your school can participate in Immigrant Justice Corps, please contact Leyda Taveras, Operations Specialist.
