Ethical Disruption of the Criminal Justice System
The De-Carceration Fund invests in and supports innovative enterprises working to alleviate the suffering caused by the U.S. criminal justice system. Ours is a unique fund model focused on returning power to those from whom it has been taken.

There are currently 2.3M incarcerated individuals in the US. Each inmate costs ~$35K per year.
It is estimated that incarceration indirectly costs society ~$260B.
Private companies make ~$7B from prisons. ~$3B of this is paid directly by families of incarcerated individuals.
However, 50%+ of incarcerate individuals end up back in prison within 3 years.
The Economics of Incarceration
Funding currently perpetuates an expensive and failing system.
