Innocence Project

Ark Charity Review

Why Ark Institute selected this charity

We believe in the power of human potential. The biggest crime is seeing that potential robbed from people who have done nothing wrong but become casualties of an unjust legal system. We love Innocence Project because they work tirelessly to set human potential free: to see the release of men and women who have been convicted of crimes they didn’t commit. Like seeds in the ground, once they are properly planted outside of prison walls, these freed men and women can flourish and grow, changing their families and society for the better as they do.

How this charity aligns with our goals

We believe in justice and we believe in truth. Much as Reaper Financial seeks to offer a solution to those whom the legacy financial system has failed, Ark Institute is proud to support an organization offering help to those whom the legal system has failed.

What was the process of approving this charity
