If donating monthly is not an option for you, we appreciate all donations. Your support makes it possible for LEAP to keep housing, employing, and educating women trying to make a new life after prison. EVERY DOLLAR MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE. When you make a donation to support LEAP, you join a growing community who believes in second (and often first) chances for women who have experienced incarceration.
It costs $7,000 for LEAP to graduate one woman from our in-prison education program, and every year we graduate 20-40 women. The odds of LEAP graduates returning to prison are 80% lower than non-LEAP graduates.
The truth is, there is a growing body of research that supports providing education inside prisons to reduce the odds of returning to prison after release and increase the odds of finding a job after release. A meta-analysis by the RAND Corporation found that every dollar spent on educating incarcerated people saves between $4 and $5 within the first three years of release, the time period when most people return to prison. And LEAP is the only organization in Florida to target our education program to women who have experienced incarceration.
What better return on investment could you ask for?
