Donate to fund DNA testing.

To date, 196 Innocence Project clients have been exonerated using DNA testing, including 35 clients who were on death row. These tests can cost between $5,000 and $50,000 — and while we're committed to paying for testing for all of our clients, no matter the cost, we need your help.

Donate to the Innocence Project’s DNA Fund today and 100% of your donation will help pay for DNA tests that could help exonerate the next innocent person.
