We don’t take a single cent from business, government or political parties — our work is funded solely through contributions from charitable foundations and individuals like you. This means we’re 100 percent independent: We don’t compromise or get distracted from our mission of fighting for your rights to connect and communicate.
Every dollar you give will help power our campaigns to save Net Neutrality, achieve affordable internet access for all, uplift the voices of people of color in the media, challenge old and new media gatekeepers to serve the public interest, end unwarranted surveillance, defend press freedom and reimagine local journalism.

Stocks and Securities
Making a gift of stock or securities is a great way to support Free Press or Free Press Action Fund. Using securities to make such a gift allows you to liquidate a stock or mutual fund and retain your cash for other purposes. If you are considering making a gift of stock, please contact Brenda Rivas at (202) 249-6091, ext. 2414, or reach out to her.
If you direct your gift of stock or securities to Free Press, you can double your tax benefits in at least two ways (we recommend you check with your tax adviser on the applicability of these tax benefits):
- Through a charitable deduction that reduces your taxes on other income; and
- By eliminating the capital gains tax you would otherwise have to pay on any increase in a stock’s value since your initial purchase.
A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a 501c3 public charity that allows a donor to take a charitable deduction during the year in which a charitable gift is contributed to the fund. The monies contributed may then be donated to charitable organizations. You can recommend how much (and how often) you want to distribute money from that fund to Free Press Action Fund, Free Press or other charities.
To set up a DAF, contact your financial or legal adviser. To recommend a gift to Free Press Action Fund or Free Press, you’ll need our legal name and address: Free Press Action Fund/Free Press, PO Box 60238, Florence, MA 01062. Free Press Action Fund’s federal tax identification number is 41-3771598. Free Press’ tax identification number is 41-2106721.
