Make a donation

Your donation will help provide Oakland families facing the threat of deportation with qualified legal representation and help free more families from detention while they fight their case.

Every $25 we raise secures one month of freedom for an Oakland student, parent or sibling.

The Immigrant Family Defense Fund is fiscally sponsored by FII-National dba Family Independence Initiative, a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. As such, your gift is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

If you prefer to make a donation by check, please make it out to FII-National, with Immigrant Family Defense Fund in the memo line. Checks can be mailed to:
