The Montana Innocence Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to exonerating the innocent and
preventing wrongful convictions.
We use DNA and other evidence to advance credible claims of innocence through our interdisciplinary Innocence Clinic
based at the University of Montana School of Law. We also work to improve our criminal justice system through proven
public policy reforms, and through training and education for attorneys, law enforcement and other Montanans across the state.
Donations fund 100% of our work. Wrongfully
incarcerated people rarely have the financial
resources necessary to prove their innocence.
Donations help cover the costs of investigation
and litigation for our clients. Learn more
about making a tax-deductible donation.
MTIP provides free legal assistance to Montanans
who maintain their innocence for the crimes
for which they were convicted. Learn more
