How To Help

Make a gift

You can help free the innocent.

Innocence Project Northwest relies heavily on private support. We are not financially supported by the Innocence Project in NYC or any other innocence organization.

Your gifts, both large and small, make a difference! By making a gift to IPNW you are helping us free innocent men and women in Washington State and prevent additional wrongful convictions through policy reform.

Gifts to IPNW are tax deductible and are processed by the University of Washington, a tax-exempt agency of the state of Washington. The UW federal tax id is 91-6001537. You will receive a receipt from the UW for your gift. 

How do gifts impact our work?

The path to exoneration is long and costly - and gifts of every size help. 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 costs ~$1,000, can be life-changing for an innocent prisoner.

  • Online gifts are processed by the University of Washington. You will receive a tax receipt for your gift from the UW Foundation.
