Your investment helps us serve 1,000s of people around the globe each year, and strengthens this grassroots movement dedicated to changing the way childhood trauma is addressed and how the U.S. and the world incarcerates millions of people.

As an organization, the Compassion Prison Project (CPP) is innovative, lean and grassroots-based. Our volunteer profile represents nearly every state in the U.S. and dozens of international countries.
As a start-up not-for-profit, CPP is building our operation budget to reach our ambitious goals. We are looking for heroes to walk alongside us and make our work possible through donations, grants, and underwriting support.
Every dollar counts and all levels of giving are gratefully received!
If you, your family, community or employer would like to discuss other ways to financially support the Compassion Prison Project, please reach out to us at
