Thank you for your support
In 2015, our total budget was 261 957.58 €. The Open Society Foundation contributed to the funding of La Quadrature du Net through an annual donation of 32% of the total budget. Few private companies contributed after the agreement of the board in order to prevent any inappropriate support. The rest of the budget, i.e. 67%, comes directly from individual donations from citizens through one-time, monthly or destined to a specified project. This type of funding guarantees the independence of the organisation although it leaves our future uncertain.
Finally, La Quadrature du Net refuses any support or donation which would question its independence.
A list of NGOs supporting La Quadrature du Net is available here. Moreover, we work daily with the Observatory for Freedoms and Digital which includes : Amnesty International France, the Cecil, Creis-Terminal, the Human Rights League, the Syndicat de la magistrature and the Syndicat des Avocats de France.
So far, none of the tentatives of La Quadrature du Net to obtain a status allowing its supporters to have tax deduction have been successful. If the NGO has been granted the status of "general interest" in French Law, we have not obtained the tax deduction (it is the case for a large number of NGO lately). Unfortunately, you won't be able to deduct your support to La Quadrature du Net from your taxes.
Financially supporting La Quadrature du Net allows us to act daily by paying our staff and the costs, but it isn't the only way to contribute to the actions of the NGO.

We do not recommend using Paypal for ethical reasons (their actions against Wikileaks for instance) and their excessive bank charges. Moreover, following an update of their terms of service, we decided to close our Paypal account, because they do not like criticism.
