We’re Bronx Freedom Fund. Every day, we fight for the rights of people who are kept in jail because they cannot afford bail. Want to help us in this fight? Here’s how.


We've paid bail for over 600 people in 2017 so far,  but there are thousands more we can support. Will you help us keep them in their communities and out of jail?

Just $39 will help us secure someone’s freedom.

Donate Now

Unlike other nonprofits, your donation is going into an organization with a revolving fund--meaning that our bail payments will continue to have a long-term impact after their first use. But in order to serve the thousands of people who need our services right now, we need your continual support.

The majority of New Yorkers (and Americans, really) have no idea that thousands of innocent people are currently sitting in jails simply because they are poor. Help spread awareness of this critical issue by sharing the recent John Oliver piece on bail funds.
