Welcome, we're glad to see you interested in becoming a partner! It's thanks to our partners' substantial support that we are able to maintain and improve Tails.

Become a partner

To be listed as a partner on our partner page, at least one of the criteria below must be met. A partner provides either:

  • A one-time donation
  • A recurring donation (for example yearly)
  • A grant or funding for some objectives on our roadmap
  • An in-kind donation (hardware, equipment, travel sponsorship, etc.)

Benefits for partners

  • Your logo will appear in the top section of our partners page: https://tails.boum.org/partners.

    You can decide to be added as soon as we receive your donation or at the beginning of the following year, if you prefer.

    Partners from previous years will still be listed but less visible.

    If possible, please send us your logo as file, minimum 85 pixels in height, varying width, 72dpi, JPG or PNG.

  • Your homepage will be linked from our partners page during the year of your donation. Our website is very well ranked by search engines and having your site linked from ours is beneficial for SEO.

    Our partners page is linked to from our homepage and donation pages.

  • You may advertise your donation to Tails on your website as well as on social media.

  • You can receive up to 5 Tails T-shirts. We do not sell these T-shirts, they are only given out to partners and individual donors. If you want T-shirts, tell us which sizes:

    • Fit (women): S, M, and L
    • Straight (men): S, M, L, XL, and 2XL.

Your donation might be tax-deductible

We have two non-profit fiscal sponsors:

  • The Center for Cultivation of Technology, a gGmbH in Germany.
  • RiseupLabs, a 501(c)(3) non-profit in the USA.

Please verify with your local fiscal administration which of them would make your donation tax-deductible.
