If you’d like to help sponsor one of our Does, you may select any individual from our current gallery of cases that has a Donate button. Usually these cases have already passed the first crucial step; their DNA has passed quality control and is ready to undergo sequencing. Each case costs approximately $1500 to process. As soon as the funding goal for a Doe is reached, we will give the lab the green light to start the sequencing. Results will become available in one to two months.

If no DNA is available, it will be necessary to obtain DNA from biological material retained by the ME. The expense of trying to extract DNA from blood is minimal, but an attempted extraction from a bone or a tooth can cost up to $760 per attempt, whether or not DNA is obtained from the sample. In some of these cases funding will be needed for the extraction and we will provide a Donate button for them.

To contribute to a particular case, please use the PayPal button on the case page, or send a check made out to the DNA Doe Project to:

DNA Doe Project
125 So. Main St. #114
Sebastopol, CA 95472

Please include a note with your check stating the case for which the money should be used. Also include your name and indicate whether you prefer for your name to be included on our list of donors or if you prefer to remain anonymous. If a case is closed before its funds are used, or donations to a case exceed its funding goal, the overage will be put towards a future case, unless you request otherwise.

All donations are tax-deductible.  We thank you for your support!
