Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund matching grant challenge
Thanks to the generosity of the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund, all donations to the Oregon Innocence Project will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a maximum of $35,000 this year. The match applies to all new donations of $5,000 or less. The match will be automatically applied, doubling the impact of your gift.
how we use your donation
Donations to Oregon Innocence Project are used to fund work on individual cases, to train law students, to educate our justice system and our community about wrongful convictions, and to promote reforms that will address and/or prevent wrongful convictions.
To date, we have received around 400 inquiries from Oregonians seeking our help. Each of these cases must be investigated to see whether there is a legal route to proving innocence. Your gift will make investigation, research, testing, and litigation in these cases possible.
Alternatively, download and print our pledge card, and send it to us with a check made payable to "Oregon Innocence Project" to Amie Wexler, Oregon Innocence Project, PO Box 5248, Portland, Oregon 97208.
