Can We Count on You?


Your Donations, Time, and Advocacy Directly Support Pennsylvania’s Wrongfully Incarcerated Innocents.


The Pennsylvania Innocence Project has two objectives: to free Pennsylvania’s incarcerated innocents and to prevent the future incarceration of innocents. We cannot accomplish either of these goals without your help. 

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, and 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.

We need you to support our efforts as an advocateThrough 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.
