Why The Tor Project Membership Program is so Vital
Tor Project as a nonprofit organization gets its support from Governments or private foundations, but this has a long turn-around period of 6 – 12 months after the submission of a proposal to the receipt of a contract and start of work, so this clearly shows that until the proposal is accepted and the signing of a grant contract, Tor Project will be unable to begin it’s work on the project scheduled more seldom 1 year prior.
So relying only on grant funding can slow down their project as a software development organization, so they decided to launch a membership program to combat slow project development. Now they start projects faster by increasing the amount and number of unrestricted contributions to the Tor Project Furthermore, as an organization or company, you can directly contact Tor Project team for support or advice concerning privacy and security.
Joining the membership program also gives up access to the company’s ‘Onion Advisors group’ that will help your company or organization to integrate Tor into their product, and assist in other areas. Members will also get to be invited to webinars and exclusive meetings together with the team of Tor Project for interesting topics about Tor.
