Transparency and Finances

As a donor-funded organisation which relies upon contributions from the people of India, we believe that your support and faith can only be maintained with greater transparency about our financial needs, fund inflows, and expenses. We practice radical transparency regarding our revenue inflows and expenses through monthly financial disclosures and quarterly members’ calls. We want you to know what you're funding.

Here are our reports:

IFF is accountable about its resources and finances to the people who fund it as we recognise and appreciate the support we receive from our donors. Through our sustained efforts towards accountability and transparency, we aim to engage and enhance your trust in supporting our shared mission for safeguarding India’s digital freedoms. Have questions about our financial reporting? Any thoughts on how we can do it better? Or do you just want to join the fight for digital rights by volunteering and helping us? Then, we look forward to hearing from you at [email protected].

Our commitment is to bring greater accountability to our functioning and ensure that our larger community of supporters and volunteers know how much money we have and how we are using it. We hope to deliver on this consistently over time.
