Support radical alternatives!

Riseup works tirelessly to create grassroots technology alternatives that address the communication needs of people and organizations working for social change. When you get a service from a corporation that doesn’t charge you, chances are that the money comes from extensive surveillance. Riseup, on the other hand, relies on donations by users like you who believe in supporting democratic alternatives.

For more information about Riseup, you can meet our members and check out our project areas. Riseup is a registered nonprofit under section 501(c)(4) of the US Internal Revenue Code.

Donations to are not tax-deductible. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation (US), you can contribute to our sister organization, Riseup Labs.

If you are a programmer, you can support Riseup by writing code.

Suggested contribution

  • Individuals: We ask that individuals with email accounts or owners of lists give monthly or yearly. If you are broke, live in the global South, or live somewhere with a devalued currency, we don’t expect you to give. This means that those with money in the global North should contribute extra as an act of solidarity. If you are unsure how much to contribute, might we suggest $5-$15 a month? If you can do more, please do!
  • Groups: We rely on organizations with email accounts or lists to contribute. It is especially essential for organizations with big mailing lists to contribute, as such lists are costly for us to provide. As a rough guideline, we ask that organizations annually contribute at least 1% of their annual budget—this is a $100 a year donation for an organization with an annual budget of $10,000.

If you have a big list with over a hundred subscribers or with high traffic and lots of archives, increase the suggested donation amount several fold.

Please consider donating more if you can afford it. Any money left over after we have met our basic expenses gets folded back into providing service to more users. If you are making a large donation (thank you!), then please consider sending a check or money order through the mail—online payment systems take a cut of about 3%.

All financial decisions by the Riseup Collective are made using the consensus process by collective members.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you only accept bank transfers in EUR?

Sending directly to our US credit union often is difficult and does not work, and when it does work, we get charged a $13 fee for each transfer, so it is not economical.

How do I donate in currencies other than USD or EUR?

First of all, if you live outside the US, please consider supporting a local tech collective in your area. If you want to send us a donation, here are a few options:

  1. If you have a credit card, you can use the online donation link above. You can also use paypal, if it is supported in your country.
  2. You can send us cash in any currency in the mail to our PO Box. People do this all the time.
  3. You can donate using cryptocurrency.

How do I donate anonymously?

You have two options:

  1. Send cash to the address listed above.
