California Innocence Project

Support the Project

The California Innocence Project uses donations to help fund investigations, litigation costs, and everyday expenses that arise in a small law firm.  By donating to the Innocence Project of California, you’ll be supporting our pursuit of justice.  Over the years, donations to the California Innocence Project have come from people of all walks of life.  We are grateful for all of the support.


California Western School of Law is home to the California Innocence Project. Students at California Western work to free wrongfully convicted inmates by reviewing more than 1000 claims of innocence each year and focusing on cases where there is evidence of actual innocence. Innocence Project attorneys and students then investigate cases by securing expert witnesses and advocating for their clients during evidentiary hearings and trials.



California Western School of Law is a Non-Profit Organization under the IRS Code 501(c)(3). Gifts to the California Innocence Project may be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Consult your tax advisor for questions regarding your specific tax situation.
