Freedom of the Press

Freedom of the Press Foundation protects and defends adversarial journalism in the 21st century.

Sorry, we no longer enable donations on Spring. Please visit the organization's website to donate.


We use crowdfunding, digital security, and internet advocacy to support journalists and whistleblowers worldwide.

Freedom of the Press Foundation aims to protect and promote the basic human right of freedom of the press, both in the United States, and abroad, in a world where surveillance, censorship, and manipulation are becoming more sophisticated and more pervasive. Public interest journalism — the kind of journalism that holds power accountable and defends human rights — is under threat everywhere.

Our goal is to ensure that all news organizations worldwide recognize that digital security is a critical press freedom issue in the 21st century. To protect journalists, their sources and their audiences, it is imperative that newsrooms use best-available security tools and practices, including encryption of sensitive communications and materials, anonymization of sources, and distribution of news through secure and censorship-resistant channels.
