The only way we can free more innocent people is with your support.

We rely on private dollars. We don’t receive funding from the state of Washington, the Innocence Project in New York City, or the Innocence Network. Your donations help us cover costs required to request documents for investigation, visit clients in prison, obtain DNA testing, consult forensic experts, and more. The results from one DNA test, which can cost as little as $600, can be life-changing for an innocent prisoner.
