How Your Donation Helps
Your investment supports people around the globe. It strengthens this movement dedicated to addressing childhood trauma compassionately and helps change the manner in which the U.S. and global community incarcerate millions of people.

Compassion Prison Project (CPP) is an innovative, grassroots organization that was initially built solely by volunteers. Our volunteer profile represents nearly every state in the U.S. and dozens of countries worldwide.

As a start-up non-profit, CPP’s operating budget has been developed with our ambitious goals in mind. We are looking for funding heroes to walk beside us, making our work possible through donations, grants, and underwriting support.

Every single dollar counts and all levels of giving are gratefully received!
