Double Your Impact!

You can double — or even triple — the amount of your donation to the Innocence Project of Minnesota with the help of your employer. Many companies offer matching gifts programs to encourage employees to donate to nonprofit organizations. Some even provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours.

Please check with your employer to see if it offers a matching gifts program that will match your contribution or volunteer hours to the Minnesota Innocence Project. If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN, or Federal Tax Identification Number), please use: 41-2020362

Matching Gifts

 

Crowd fund through Razoo.  You can choose to start your own fundraiser or fundraise with a team.  More informatoin can be found directly on Razoo's site.

If you choose the "fundraise" option, simply select your goal, and then choose which kind of cause you are supporting by clicking on a "certified charity," and writing "Innocence Project of Minnesota."

If you choose the "team" option instead, decide if your team will only fundraise for a select cause, and then type in "Innocence Project of Minnesota" where the site prompts you to "select the nonprofit you want to support."
