Attorney Referral Form
Minnesota Freedom Fund provides bail assistance for those facing incarceration due to an inability to pay said bail. PLEASE NOTE: We post bail in the state of Minnesota only. If you need bail assistance in another state, you may be able to find a local bail fund at bit.ly/localbailfunds.
MFF provides need-based assistance. Neither race (or perceived race), orientation, or gender affect a person's eligibility to receive assistance. However, we do prioritize those who face the greatest level of danger and marginalization in detention. Our list of priority groups can be found in our F.A.Q on our website. MFF recognizes that the criminal legal system is racist. We collect race data about the people we serve to ensure that our impact counteracts these racial disparities rather than contributes to them. This information is for statistical purposes and helps us tell the story of bail setting practices in Minnesota.
All attorneys must obtain a signed Assignment of Bail to a Third Party Form. You can find that form here.
All attorneys submitting this request on behalf of their clients are expected to inform clients that by signing the form and providing the details listed below, they are making a formal request for bail, but with no guarantee MFF will pay. If you need access to these documents or have further questions about making a referral, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
REMINDER: MFF requires these steps to be completed for the referral to be considered a formal request. Incomplete referrals will not be considered.
