Become a Monthly Sustainer

Like all struggles, our movement needs funds to grow. As California death row prisoner Kevin Cooper said, "Struggles like this take money, and we all know that the state has all the money it needs to use to execute poor people." Please support our efforts by becoming a monthly sustainer.  Download the form here.

Monthly sustainers are those members and supporters who give a regular monthly donation to the Campaign to End the Death Penalty. These donations have become the financial lifeblood of our organization. In these trying economic times, grants have been harder to come by. The money we raise each month is truly sustaining our work.

Please read testimonials from  Lawrence Foster, Sr. (grandfather of former death row prisoner Kenneth Foster, Jr.) and Louis Kaegi(longtime member of the CEDP in Chicago) on why they are monthly sustainers.  

If you want to become a monthly sustainer, download the form here.   Monthly donations range from $5 to $100.  Help us to continue o the work we do--we need you. The Campaign is a nonprofit organization, so all contributions are tax deductible.

Donate to the Costella Cannon Fund

The Costella Cannon Fund was created to honor our dear friend, fellow Campaigner, and mother of Death Row 10 prisoner, who passed away in 2003.

The Fund is used to increase the participation of death row family members in grassroots organizating and activities such as covering the travel expenses of death row family members so that they can attend CEDP's annual conference. Read more about Costella and why the Fund is needed in The New Abolitionist.

Please help us reach out to more family members by making a generous donation. Thank you!
