Freedom Drive FAQs

How does fundraising work?

Once you register as a participant, IJM will send you resources to share with your networks about IJM’s work and invite them to give. We’ll make it easy and coach you along the way! All donations made will support IJM’s work of rescuing people from sex trafficking, slavery and violence. For more questions on fundraising, reach out to the IJM team at [email protected].

Can people in my networks give by check or stock or wire transfer?

Yes!  Checks marked “Freedom Drive – [Insert Name of Participant]” can be mailed to International Justice Mission, P.O. Box 96961, Washington, DC 20090-6961. For stock or wire transfer, contact the IJM team at 703.465.5495 or email [email protected].

Please be sure to alert the IJM team that contributions are being made in connection with your Freedom Drive campaign.
