Right now you can help EFF receive a portion of a $150,000+ donation pool without even opening your wallet. EFF is one of the three nonprofits featured in CREDO's giving group this month, so if you vote for EFF by May 31 you will help direct a bigger piece of the donation pie toward protecting online freedom!
Since its founding, CREDO's network of customers and action-takers has raised more than $85 million for different charities. Each month, CREDO selects three groups to receive a portion of donations that the selected nonprofits then use to drive positive change. Mobile customers generate the funds as they use paid services. Anyone can visit the CREDO Donations site and vote on how to distribute donations among the selected charities. The more votes a group receives, the higher its share of that month's donations.
EFF is proud to stand alongside organizations that defend users' rights. In 2016, CREDO revealed that EFF had been representing the company in a long legal battle over the constitutionality of national security letters (NSLs). The FBI has issued unknown numbers of NSL demands for companies' customer information without a warrant or court supervision. NSLs are typically accompanied by a gag order, making it difficult for the recipients to complain or resist, but EFF continues the fight for justice.
