The Guardians

The Guardians are a community of EFF major donors whose annual donations are between $1,000 and $9,999.

Guardians stand with EFF on the front lines in the battle for digital rights, joining with us to win lawsuits, create better policy, and build technology. Together, we become a global force for an Internet that continues to connect, inspire, and uplift all of us.

As a Guardian, you’ll power EFF’s unique team as they bring an exceptional 30-year history of fighting for tech users in court, before lawmakers, and in the public forum. In recognition of your support, you’ll receive:

  • A keepsake metal member card
  • Access to an annual invite-only Guardians Gathering
  • Quarterly ‘Insider Briefing’ updates
  • Invites to EFF general member’s events, such as member Speakeasy

With your support, we have the ability to build a better future for civil liberties online and human rights for all. Thank you for joining this movement.

If you have any questions, please email Daniel de Zeeuw at ddz@eff.org.

EFF is celebrating nine years of top ratings from the nonprofit watchdog Charity Navigator! Your donation is tax-deductible as allowed by law.
