We believe the cash bail system is cruel and unjust. Any time spent in jail can be detrimental to someone’s well-being—even more so in a pandemic.
We have two goals:
- Help folks who can’t afford their bail to get out of jail as soon as possible.
- Expose the injustices of pre-trial detention, educate the public, and work to end the cash bail system in Utah.
The Salt Lake Community Bail Fund is fiscally sponsored by Blue Sky Institute, a local 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing outreach and education on social justice issues. Donations are tax-deductible.
Your donation will help pay bail for incarcerated individuals in Salt Lake County jails. Donations may also be used to provide supplies for bail fund recipients (such as public transit passes) and to cover organizational costs as needed.
You can also donate by mailing a check to:
