Annual FundraiserEvery September - The Headquarters at Seaport Village
The California Innocence Project hosts an Annual Fundraiser to support the work of freeing the innocent. Founded in 1999, the California Innocence Project has spent years freeing more than two dozen people from prison. In order to continue this work, the Project began hosting an Annual Fundraiser in 2016. The hope is to grow the event each year to raise additional funds to free more innocent people from prison. If you would like to sponsor our fundraiser, please contact TC Wilson (TWilson@cwsl.edu) for additional information. We thank everyone for helping us accomplish our goal.
Details for the 2018 Annual Fundraiser will be announced in May of 2018. Please check back for more information on the date, time, and location of the event, as well as how to purchase tickets.
In addition to the annual event, the California Innocence Project regularly hosts small, intimate fundraisers. If you are interested in a private event for you and your friends, please reach out to TC Wilson and she will help coordinate it with you.
