Ways to Support the Innocent

The Pennsylvania Innocence Project works to reform the criminal justice system to prevent wrongful convictions of the innocent. You can help support our efforts as an Advocate. If you’re busy with school, work, or both, live far from Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, or Harrisburg, you can help bring needed change. Through our LEGISLATIVE ACTION CENTER, you can contact your legislators directly to seek their support for needed laws. You can take part in our #ACT4INNOCENTS campaign through social media to help share information about our work through social media. Or host a COMMUNITY EDUCATION EVENT to educate others about the Project.

And, of course, your financial support is critical to our existence. The Project accepts donations in many different forms to help fund the research, legal assistance, and transitional services we provide for the innocent. To the right of this page, you will see the option for a quick and easy one time donation.

For a full range of donation options, including checks, United Way, Amazon Smile, donor advised funds, stocks, and gift matching, click on our DONATIONS tab. The drop-down will give you more information on each. We are so grateful for what our supporters give. Thank you!

For interested law students and a limited number of undergraduates, we offer volunteer positions, SUMMER INTERNSHIPS, or EXTERNSHIPS.

If you are a Lawyer, we especially need your help. With only a few lawyers to cover the whole state, we just cannot do our work alone: our clients rely on our pro bono partners to provide the best legal representation possible.
