Chicago Torture Justice Center Funders

The Chicago Torture Justice Center (CTJC) opened its doors in May 2017 and has been incorporated with the State of Illinois since December 2015. Currently, the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago is CTJC’s fiscal sponsor. CTJC received 501-C3 status in 2018. It is governed by our Board of Directors.

Half of our funding comes from the Chicago Department of Health, and the rest can be attributed to grants and private donors.  Below is a list of our current and previous donors.
