Tor’s Bug Smash Fund: Progress Since January 2020

by alsmith | July 17, 2020

At the beginning of August 2019, we asked you to help us build our very first Bug Smash Fund. This fund will ensure that the Tor Project has a healthy reserve earmarked for maintenance work and smashing the bugs necessary to keep Tor Browser, the Tor network, and the many tools that rely on Tor strong, safe, and running smoothly. We want to share a final update on the work the 2019 Bug Smash Fund made possible.

There Are Many Ways to Help Tor Take Back the Internet

by Sarah | November 29, 2019

This year’s campaign, Take Back the Internet, has been a great success so far. Thank you to the more than 3,000 donors who have helped us raise over $130,000 that will become over $260,000 with Mozilla’s match. This year we set an ambitious goal because the demand for privacy is growing and the demand on the Tor network and our small staff is also increasing.

A better internet is possible. I’ve seen it.

I know that a better internet is possible. In fact, it once existed. I started using the internet in the mid-90s, with a dial up connection in my family’s house in Brazil. I loved getting online because I could go down an infinite rabbit hole of hyperlinks, learning and discovering new things, and I could talk to all kinds of people without having to reveal my real name or my real identity. Who I was in the physical world didn’t matter when I got online.
