JURIST is a non-profit corporation, registered as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. As such, contributions to JURIST generally are deductible for federal income tax purposes.

Why does JURIST need your help?

Due to general economic circumstances completely outside of our control, we are anticipating a significant reduction in funding (meaning several tens of thousands of dollars) from our primary benefactors for our next fiscal year. If not offset, this reduction has the potential to directly affect JURIST's ability to maintain its current operations.

Specifically, JURIST needs funds to:

  • Redesign the JURIST.org website
  • Fully develop a mobile version of JURIST.org, as well as iPhone and Android apps
  • Increase outreach efforts to JURIST's audience
  • Develop new programming, including audio and video coverage, seminars and conferences that will directly benefit our community
  • Cover costs associated with managing our law student staff, such as development of staff manuals, training materials, and even the occassional pizza
  • Establish an emergency reserve to cope with technical crises in a timely fashion
  • Add professional staff support for JURIST's Commentary
  • Add professional technical support
  • Ensure continued funding for JURIST's existing professional staff
