Donate to the Fund

We are pleased to announce that the fundraising campaign to match each dollar up to $35,000 has concluded a few months early!

Last spring, an anonymous donor pledged to match every dollar donated to the JAA Appellate Fund until the end of 2021, up to $35,000, for a potential total bump of $70,000 to the trust that will fund Jodi’s appeals beyond the standard, state-paid process. Recently, a second angel donor came along and matched this pledge with the remainder needed to meet the $70,000 goal!

Jodi and her family deeply appreciate the generosity of everyone who contributed during this campaign. Each dollar puts her in closer reach of being able to retain competent lawyers to fight for the justice she was denied during her ridiculous trial. Accordingly, the trust is still accepting donations, which can be made by clicking/tapping the “Donate” button below, or by sending a check or money order to:

JAA Appellate Fund
P.O. Box 1381
Moline, IL 61266
