In 2012, the Open Society Foundation
has been contributing to La Quadrature du Net's budget through a yearly grant of 60K euros (30% of the budget). The Shuttleworth foundation
has also contributed to La Quadrature's budget through a donation of $5.000 (2% of the budget). All the rest of our funds, approximately 130 k euros, or 65% of the budget, come from individual citizens' contributions. This is a guarantee of independence, but at the same time creates uncertainty regarding the sustainability of our income and of our actions.
La Quadrature is still trying to obtain the tax deductibility for its donators. In a first examination of our request, the French administration has granted us the general interest qualification but denied the scientific, social, educational or cultural aspect of our work. We believe that this decision is not justified and therefore asked for a second examination of our request. In the meantime unfortunately, amounts donated in 2013 will not be tax deductible.
Spread the word about this campaign! By speaking up on social networks, on blogs, or by telling people around you about the importance of La Quadrature's actions, and how they can participate, you can help us. This support is vital, as La Quadrature can only exist through the citizens who share our commitment to the free Internet.
You can also support La Quadrature du Net day after day by getting involved
Financial donations help La Quadrature's work on a day-to-day basis by paying for its full-time activists' salaries, costs and other, but La Quadrature would be nothing without the people who give their time, skills and energy to support its actions.

La Quadrature du Net does not sell t-shirts. The only way to support La Quadrature du Net (financially) is to make a donation. Of course, you can also help and support La Quadrature in other ways, by helping out for instance. Selling t-shirts would require a lot of time and effort and would probably mean hiring someone in order to make any substantial profit from it. It would not be worth it. The pi-shirts are but a (small) gift from La Quadrature to show its gratitude and thank its most generous benefactors.
For logistical reasons, t-shirts are sent in batch. This may take a while, sometimes up to a couple months. This waiting period is sometimes long, but we do not forget any shipment.
