Please Support CJI This Giving Season!

We know you care deeply about supporting Colorado’s courts. Colorado Judicial Institute (CJI) shares your concern and, for over 40 years, has worked hard on behalf of a judicial system that, bound by its code of conduct, cannot always speak for itself.

This past year CJI wrote an op-ed countering misinformation about how Colorado’s courts work and testified at legislative hearings to advise caution about proposed sweeping changes to judicial discipline. We funded continuing education for judges, supported efforts to diversify the bench, and provided public education about the judicial system to varied audiences.

As you consider your year-end charitable giving, please include CJI in your plans and help ensure this work continues. Your investment in CJI strengthens our impact and underwrites strategies to expand our outreach, increase education, and cultivate more engagement in support of Colorado’s courts. Plans for 2023 include:

  • Outreach: Position CJI as an important go-to resource for media, government, and business communities. Proactively share positive stories.
  • Education: Launch a new “Our Courts” pilot program to augment civics education for high school seniors. Develop new learning resources, including explainers and microlearning videos.
  • Engagement: Offer more opportunities to meet judges in person, outside the courtroom. Support efforts to appoint diverse judges and connect them with the communities they serve.

It’s an ambitious agenda, and we need your help!

Please consider a special year-end gift of $250—or more!—as we partner to promote excellence, equity, impartiality, and public trust in Colorado’s courts through outreach, education, and engagement. Every gift makes a difference! (And all donors become part of CJI’s membership community.) On behalf of CJI and the Colorado judicial system we all support, we thank you for your generosity and wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!
