Our success this past year, and our collective ability to move forward in a world with a shaken foundation depended on our ability at times to put aside all differences and work together toward the greatest good for all involved. It's not an easy thing to do, nor is it free from contention; but it is critical in the pursuit of justice in our legal system. 

Over the last year many of our successes are due to collaborative efforts to achieve freedom for our clients and other Floridians who have faced injustice in our criminal legal system. This year, our Exoneration Celebration highlights these collaborative successes, and honors the ongoing effort to rewrite the conventions of criminal law past and future. 



Our 2021 annual event will be held virtually for the first time. We will celebrate those freed in Florida and around the world, honor those working among the efforts for equity, and share the real world impact of support from individuals like you.



Our annual fundraiser, the Exoneration Celebration, will be hosted in coordination with a number of special guests, clients, advocates, donors, movers, shakers, and change-makers. We are excited to be able to reach you where you are and to connect with new communities.


We might be far apart but we are determined to have a good time! Live performances, special guest appearances, games with chances to win, and a box of surprises to enjoy during the event. You won't want to miss this.

Deadline for sponsors to be included in the pre- and live event advertising is May 21, 2021. 


This event is free to attend. 

We have included a donate option if you would like to register to attend and make a gift in support of our work. 

While there is no obligation to make a donation, all proceeds from our annual benefit go toward the Innocence Project of Florida and provide critical funding for our litigation efforts to free the wrongfully convicted in Florida prisons.

Our litigation efforts and support services for freed people are provided at no cost to the wrongfully convicted. Your support of our annual fundraising event makes this vital assistance available to others who are innocent, imprisoned, and waiting to come home.

These services are made possible by generous donations, grants, and sponsorships of our organization. You can make an impact and invest in justice by sponsoring the 2021 Exoneration Celebration or simply by attending online!


We are thrilled to offer a variety of sponsorship packages with unique benefits for our inaugural virtual event. Each sponsor will be contacted to execute the benefits of the options listed below.

Sponsorships can be purchased online or made by submitting a completed sponsorship form and mailing or emailing it to our Development Coordinator, Kelleigh Helm. If you have questions or would like to discuss an alternative level of support or in-kind donation, please reach Kelleigh at


Thanks for your support!
