Liberty Counsel does not charge clients for representation, so we depend on individuals, groups and churches that care about advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and the family. The ministry is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that accepts tax-deductible donations.

For the two-year period July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2015, Liberty Counsel received $11,229,127 of income, which included contributions of $9,450,055 from donors, and $1,779,072 of non-donor funding (other income, including investments, and court-awarded revenues). Non-donor funding exceeded administrative costs ($934,586) and fundraising costs ($505,239) combined ($1,439,825). Liberty Counsel is a fiscally responsible ministry.
