Community has always been at the heart of Tor's strength. In this spirit, we created the Tor Project's Membership Program. Our goal is to build a supportive relationship between our nonprofit and private sector organizations that use our technology or want to support our mission.

Show your support for privacy online

When your organization joins the Tor Project’s Membership Program, you are demonstrating your commitment to privacy online and supporting Tor’s agility and development. In return, you become a closer part of our community with three specific benefits: access to our Onion Advisors group to help you integrate Tor into your product, inclusion in conversations and exclusive meetings with the Tor Project team to learn about what we are cooking at Tor, and public promotion of your membership. If you are interested in becoming a member, please reach out to us at giving@torproject.org.

Membership Tiers

Membership tiers differ in their level of public promotion. No matter the level of your contribution, members receive the same community benefits: access to our Onion Advisors group to help integrate Tor into your project and inclusion in conversations and exclusive meetings with the Tor Project team. At Tor, we love all of the onions, but shallots are the tastiest!

"Tor's primary benefit, for the uninitiated: It encrypts your traffic and bounces it through a chain of computers, making it very difficult for anyone to track where it came from. You can see how easy access to an anonymized services like that might come in handy when you're working on anything from job hunting to political organizing."
