GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a day that would encourage people to do good in their communities. Since then, Giving Tuesday has grown into a global generosity movement, inspiring millions of people to give back. Giving Tuesday is about unleashing the power of generosity and community and showing the world that when we come together for good, anything is possible.
Generosity comes in many forms. No matter how you show up this Giving Tuesday, we want you to let your generosity shine! That’s why there are so many ways to support The Bail Project.
Making a single donation or becoming a monthly donor is the best way to make an immediate impact. Donations allow The Bail Project to provide free bail to thousands of people experiencing poverty annually, securing their freedom and restoring the presumption of innocence. Through Community Release with Support, we provide court notifications, free transportation to court, and help our clients navigate voluntary supportive services like substance use recovery and housing based on their needs. Without your donations, our clients wouldn’t get the support they need. In addition to providing immediate assistance to clients we serve, your gift helps to combat a two-tier system of justice through transformative policy change.
For those who want to leverage the power of the community this Giving Tuesday, we make it easy to create your own fundraiser. In just a few minutes, your fundraiser can be live and ready to accept donations from friends and family. Bail Project supporters are getting their communities involved in helping to end cash bail every day, and creating your own fundraising campaign will help you generate more donations for the cause you love while informing others of The Bail Project’s critical mission.
You can also get your workplace involved in supporting The Bail Project by matching your gift or leaving a legacy to help prevent people experiencing poverty from suffering the devastating effects of pretrial incarceration for generations to come.
Thanks to our supporters, we’ve provided bail support to over 28,000 people and assisted thousands more with community-based supportive services. With the help of our community, we’ve prevented over 1 million days in jail and saved taxpayers over $92 million.
As we work to build a better, more just, and humane pretrial system where freedom isn’t dependent on the size of one’s bank account, we’re proud to have our supporters by our side, making progress possible. This Giving Tuesday, join millions worldwide and make a difference in your community.
This time of year we are committed to bringing people home for the holidays and reuniting families. We are only able to do that through the generous support of readers like you. This year, give the gift of freedom. Donate today.
