A non-profit organization, the Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) is now accepting cryptocurrency donations for its latest fundraising campaign, writes Cointelegraph

The Freedom of the Press Foundation describes itself as a non-profit organization dedicated to helping support and defend public-interest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption, and law-breaking in government. They work to preserve and strengthen the rights guaranteed to the press under the First Amendment through crowdfunding, digital security, and internet advocacy.

Formed in 2012 and based in San Francisco, the foundation was started to “raise the awareness of threats to media publications and whistle-blowers and others who work to ensure that the public actually learns what it has a right to know,” it claims on its website.

In January 2016, FPF’s lawsuit against the Justice Department revealed that the US government has secret rules for targeting journalists with National Security Letters (NSLs) and FISA court orders. Another FPF lawsuit in the same year showed that the Obama administration secretly lobbied against bipartisan Freedom of Information Act reform in Congress, despite the bill being based word-for-word on the Obama administration’s supposed transparency guidelines.

In its recent round of fundraising, blockchain company, Mainframe, donated 1000 ETH (USD458,000 at time of press) Mainframe a platform for decentralized applications, claims that it is resistant to censorship, surveillance, and disruption. FPF responded on their donations page:

“Your support enables us to protect journalists and whistleblowers worldwide, and will help further projects like SecureDrop, the US Press Freedom Tracker, and the archival of threatened news outlets.”

Mainframe commented that it had decided to make the donation because both organizations fight for freedom of information, suggesting that “public advocacy becomes that much more powerful when coupled with innovation and better choices.”

FPF has suggested contributions to the nonprofit organization can now be made in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and ZCash and other coins are being considered.
