For the past 15 years, The Freedom to Choose Project (FTC) has offered award-winning rehabilitative programs – based on spiritual psychology– to nearly 4,000 individuals in 5 California prisons.
We help break the cycle of recidivism & empower incarcerated individuals to become thriving members of society. Your financial support allows us to bring these life-changing tools to those who need it most.
Every donation matters. Any amount helps.

In a big show of confidence, the state of California recently awarded FTC with 2 grants, helping us scale and grow our impact by taking on 2 new prisons. With the grants for our 3 other prisons set to expire, we’re inviting our incredible community of stakeholders to provide the financial support needed to build on our momentum and help us meet the growing demand for our services.
In 2020, we’re expanding to offer 2x the number of prison projects than ever before. That’s 2 weekend workshops per prison, each supported by over 50 volunteers. We’ll also offer weekly integration classes to support the ongoing training of our participants.
Each weekend prison projects costs us approximately $63 per inmate (with up to 200 inmates in attendance). Next year, offering 10 of these projects will cost us $250,000— plus the costs of the weekly classes.
To help us cover the expense of our expanded programming for 2020, we need to raise a minimum of $300,000. Ideally, we’ll raise more than that (upwards to $500,000) to allow us to prepare to expand into even more prisons in 2021.
