For the past several months, Pennywise has helped expunge over 50 old criminal records by covering the $90 court filing fee for people who cannot afford the fee.   

And now it’s your chance to help Pennywise do more!

This legislative session, the VT Legislature sponsored a bill that will eliminate the filing fee for expungements, starting July 1, 2019. This is huge progress for Vermont.  But until then, filing for expungement still costs $90. This is where you come in.

Expungement of old criminal records contributes to community prosperity and enhances public safety.  If you believe in second chances, please donate to Pennywise’s SECOND CHANCE fund, so that our neighbors who have served their sentence can get a clean slate and a fresh start.
