]  → Donate - Documenting and Exposing Corruption

Our human power comes from our volunteers, so our project overhead costs are very low. Your generous donation helps cover our computer equipment purchases, travel, and other operating expenses.

All proceeds from your donation (minus the standard credit card processing fees of 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction) go towards the project. If you send a check or money order via postal mail, 100% of the donation is received.

STATUS UPDATE: We still need to raise $5,000 in funds to install a secure drop box so that citizens can safely submit anonymous tips.

For security reasons, we are unable to using our existing corporate infrastructure for the SecureDrop installation and must have dedicated machines (three servers and three computers) for:

  1. Application Server
  2. Monitor Server
  3. Firewall Server
  4. Administrator Computer
  5. Journalist Computer
  6. Secure Viewing Station
  7. Lots of USB drives
