The Tor Project donations received

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2022. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Knight Foundation320,000.001--Technologyhttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/5574-- Grant period: 07/01/2012 - 06/30/2013; part of the challenge: Knight News Challenge; goal: To develop an open security toolkit for journalists, allowing them to avoid digital surveillance by governments and other groups Summary: With world press freedom in decline for the past decade, journalists and their sources are often threatened by governments, criminal organizations and others who monitor their mobile and online communication to see who is talking to the press. To help protect reporters and their sources, the Tor Project will use its vast network of volunteers to create a toolkit for journalists. The kit will include Tor Project’s existing secure web browser and anonymous upload utility, along new tools and training videos.
