Funding

FUNDING

Independence, diversity, and sustainability are central to Access Now’s ability to carry out its mission, and we rely on the support of a diverse range of stakeholders.

The majority of our support comes from foundations and development agencies, with the rest coming from companies, courts, individuals, and civil society organizations. To ensure the independence, and integrity of our organization, we accept support contingent upon the following non-negotiables:

  • Access Now does not accept funding that places its staff, partners, supported communities, or mission at risk.
  • Access Now does not accept funding that jeopardizes its relationship with its partners, stakeholders, or supported communities and networks.
  • Access Now does not accept funding that compromises its organizational independence, including funding relationships that may influence its priorities, policy positions, advocacy efforts, regions of focus, or direct action work.
  • Access Now does not accept funding that poses a risk to its reputation more broadly or with respect to specific programmatic areas of work.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected] or reach out directly to a member of our staff. Access Now is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. All contributions are tax deductible.

Access Now’s mission is to defend and extend the digital rights of users at risk around the world. To this end, we work to ensure all of our programs and services create real outcomes, whether through technology support, advocating for rights-respecting policy or holding companies, governments and others accountable to user rights. As such, we believe we must also be accountable to our partners, supporters and individuals who depend on open and secure communications. Find below our Annual Reports, independently audited financial statements and tax filings for available years since Access Now was founded in 2009.
