Other Ways to Give

Beyond individual donations, there are a variety of ways you can support CDT’s mission to keep the Internet open, innovative and free. These include gift matching, the combined federal campaign and foundation support.


Many companies have programs through which charitable contributions made by employees are matched. You may be able to double your donation to CDT simply by taking advantage of your company’s corporate gift matching program. Contact your company’s Human Resources office or department to see what corporate gift matching options are available. If your employer does provide such a program, your Human Resources department will be able to provide you with a gift matching form to send to CDT along with your donation. Complete this form and mail it with your donation to: CDT Attention: Donor Services, 1401 K Street NW, Suite 200 Washington, DC 20005.

Cy pres funds are awarded to a charitable organization by the court when there are excessive, unallocated, unclaimed or undeliverable funds in a class-action judgment or settlement. CDT accepts cy pres funding to support our work on consumer privacy, free expression and other core issue areas.


If you are a federal government employee, and would like to donate to CDT, you can participate in the Fall Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) of the National Capital Area. To make a donation, speak with the officer in charge of workplace giving at your agency, fill out a provided pledge card, and make your pledge. Federal employees may elect to make one-time gifts or make their donation through payroll deductions. More information on the CFC Campaign is found at www.cfctoday.org. CDT’s CFC Number is 52433.


Corporate support helps CDT continue its work to maintain an open, innovative and free Internet. We offer corporate partners opportunities to collaborate with issue stakeholders and come to consensus on policy recommendations in these key areas: Free Expression, Consumer Privacy, Health Privacy, Security and Freedom, Copyright, E-Government and Open Government, Open Architecture and Standards, and Global Internet Freedom. While CDT is known for the depth of its knowledge on technology and legal issues, our success also lies in our ability to translate complex issues into language that is accessible and understandable to wider audiences. For more information on corporate support of CDT, and to learn more about CDT’s working groups, please contact Lee-Berkeley Shaw, 202-407-8834, or [email protected]


CDT’s dedication to keeping the Internet open, innovative and free is made possible in part by the partnership of private, family, community and corporate foundations. To learn more about how your foundation can partner with CDT and play an important part in the continued shaping of the legal, regulatory and technical environment surrounding the Internet, please contact Lee-Berkeley Shaw, 202-407-8834, or [email protected]
