To learn more about our founder, Dennis Prager, watch this 5-Minute Video: Who Is Dennis Prager?
- What is the status of your lawsuit with YouTube/Google?
After Google subsidiary YouTube began restricting access to over 200 PragerU videos—including our videos on the Ten Commandments—we filed two lawsuits in state and federal courts. While both lawsuits have been dismissed, we continue to fight in the court of public opinion, spread awareness about the dangers of Big Tech censorship, and fight for freedom of speech for all Americans.
To learn more about the threat of Big Tech censorship, watch PragerU’s short documentary Restricted: How Big Tech Is Taking Away Your Freedom. Stand up for free speech and fight back by adding your name to the petition to tell YouTube to stop restricting PragerU videos.

FAQs on Supporting PragerU
- How can I support PragerU?
Spread the word, share our content, and donate. There are many ways to give to Prageru. Every dollar matters. Your tax-deductible donation allows us to produce and share our content with millions of people all over the world. Also consider checking out the PragerU Store to show off your support for PragerU.
- How do I update my monthly donation plan to PragerU that I set up online?
As an online supporter, you are able to manage your recurring donations using your Classy account.
Classy is the platform we use to process donations, and every month when your donation recurs you are sent a receipt via email. In the receipt, click the link that says, ‘Manage Your Donation.’
You will need to set up an account if you have not done so yet. Once logged in, navigate to the ‘Recurring Donations’ section. Select ‘Edit Donation’ and from there you will be able to edit your contact and payment information.
At this time, the platform does not allow for users to change the monthly amount or processing day in their accounts. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 833-PRAGERU to make these adjustments.

- How do I update my monthly donation plan that I set up in the PragerU app?
Please email email@example.com or call 833-PRAGERU for all questions and concerns. A Development Associate will get back to you as soon as possible.

FAQs on Tax Letters
- When do PragerU tax letters go out for donations?
We mail out tax letters to our donors by January 31st of each year for the preceding calendar year.
- Are there donation limits to get a tax letter?
We typically send these out to donors who gave a total of $200 or more in the prior year. Many nonprofits send these out only if a donor gives $250 or more in a single transaction, but for your convenience we use lower limits.
- What if I gave separately from my spouse, and also gave from my business account?
Although sometimes people prefer one consolidated tax letter, IRS rules dictate that we can only provide tax letters to each payor separately, even if you file your taxes jointly.
- When will I get an Acknowledgement Letter for my donation from my Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?
We will issue an Acknowledgement Letter for donations received $10k or more within 2 weeks of receiving the donation, if we are provided with contact information along with the donation to be able to do so. If you’d like an Acknowledgement Letter to be issued for under $10k, we are happy to do so upon request. Please note official tax letters are issued by your Donor Advised Fund upon funding the DAF, and not PragerU.
- What is a goods/services deduction?
If you received any goods/services from your donation (i.e. by coming to an event and having a meal, or receiving merchandise), we have to legally deduct a fair market value cost of that item from your donation. So if an event ticket was $500, and your meal estimate is $50, we would provide you a letter showing all amounts with a net tax donation of $450.
- What if I donated less than $200?
You can always use your cancelled check and/or receipt from Classy if you ever need to show proof of donating to PragerU. Your tax preparer will usually not send any backup with your tax return to the IRS, but these are usually held in case of audits, etc. Please remember none of the above is considered official legal/tax/financial advice, and always check with your tax professional for any specific questions or concerns.
