The National Center for State Courts is an independent, nonprofit 501c(3) organization committed to improving the rule of law through leadership and service to our nation’s state courts and courts around the world. Since 1971, NCSC has remained committed to equipping courts with necessary research and resources to solve problems and increase public confidence in the justice system.

NCSC funding comes from many sources, including government contracts and grants and voluntary dues from more than 90% of the states.  Your contribution to the Innovation Fund allows the Center to create innovative solutions to the evolving needs of our state courts in their pursuit of fair and efficient court administration.
