How can you help LSA?
Everyone can help in some way, no matter how new to the struggle for lifer justice...
...or how many years you’ve been onboard.
First, funding. Life Support Alliance (LSA) and Life Support Alliance Education Fund (LSAEF) are donation driven. We appreciate single donations of any amount however if you are really committed we would ask that you consider pledging a monthly amount and supporting the cause long term. Any amount is helpful and greatly appreciated.The way you can be of the most help to our common cause is to set up automatic monthly payments in a small amount you would never miss. Maybe $10. or $25. or even $50. per donation.
If you want to set up a recurring monthly or quarterly donation that you don't have to be bothered with until you want to change it, you can do that with your own online banking in your account. This is a complimentary service with all major banks. We would prefer you to donate this way because recurring monthly donations, even small ones, give us financial stability and continuity. That helps us serve our focus more consistently. Here's how:
Log in to your online banking page. There you can go to the "Bill Pay" or “Payments” tab, which is a free service. In just a few clicks you can set up a periodic payment in any amount you choose, at any interval you choose, I.E. weekly; monthly; quarterly; etc. And you can stop it at any time just as easy once our account information is logged into your “Pay-To Accounts”.
Do this in the following way.
In your own online banking page, look for the "Bill Pay" tab and under that click on "Manage Pay-To Accounts".
Then look for "Add Pay-To Account."
It's usually 3 easy steps to add our Pay-To account information.
You just have to enter our account information in the spaces provided.
You may or may not need all of the following information.
The Payee information you will use is as follows:
VICTIMS OF INJUSTICE, INC
(Bank of America)
ACCOUNT #3250 8621 9516
ROUTING #121 000 358
P. O. Box 277
Rancho Cordova, CA. 95741
Phone # 916-402-3750
(If this seems overwhelming or confusing to you, you can call your bank and they will walk you through, step by step over the phone or in person at your local bank branch.)
Once you've added our account information as a "Pay-To" account in your account, look for "Automatic Payments" or "Recurring Payments" and click on that.
That's where you will set the donation amount and the frequency it is automatically sent.
Just as easily as you set the amount you can change it or cancel it at any time right there from your computer.
The most difficult part is adding our account information, and you only have to do that once and it's done.
Note: This will not give us any access to your account in any way.
once that's done, your bank's Bill Pay center will send a check from your account to us for deposit.
You can use the same account information to set up email transfers within your account.
This service is also free but does not recur automatically.
Then you can donate anytime as easy as sending an email.
All contributions of any sort can be sent to our location in Sacramento, P.O. Box 277, Rancho Cordova, CA. 95741, or through Pay-Pal. To donate through Pay-Pal, use our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org and (click here) for Pay-Pal donations. Please email us notice of your donation and where it is intended. Thank you. Being an activist yourself is the best way to help LSA and your lifer.
Another way you can help is by becoming a participant in the mailing tree for Lifer-Line. Let us know if you’re willing to help mail newsletters to indigent inmates. We will send you a list of names and address to which you will mail the newsletter each month, using LSA’s address as the return address, so there is no connection to another prisoner.
By adding your name to our email list to receive the newsletter you will also receive legislative and action alerts and updates, letting you know when we need your help to write or call individuals in Sacramento on bills or other immediate issues. We always provide a sample letter and a list of names and contact information for you to use.
Please let us know what you decide to do and how easily it works for you.
When we receive your donation we will let you know.
Become an informed participant; learn who your state legislators are and how to contact them. When bills are up for votes in the legislature we will send out calls to action, asking you to contact your state Senator or Assembly member and urge them to support or oppose certain bills. You can find out your state Senator or Assembly member (click here for state legislator).
Don't be afraid to find your voice and let those who work for YOU know what you expect from them. You are a stakeholder in corrections and prison issues; you have a interest and opinion that should be heard and considered. And we are always in need of new information from various prisons. Please send us your concerns, issues and questions, as prisoners and their families are our ‘boots on the ground’ in the battle to win fair treatment for lifers.
Thank you for your support.
It's people like you that make the real difference.
