Fund Tor and
Nos Oignons!

Everyone should be able to learn, communicate and create. All without feeling under surveillance. That’s why Tor Browser is free. As is using the Tor network. But running all the computers forming the network costs money. Nos Oignons needs your help to fund its relays.

About one connection to an Internet site out of fifty goes through one of Nos Oignons’ exit node. After 5 years, the organization would like to continue its service which costs about 12,000€ each year.

Why donate?

Nos Oignons is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run, transparent organisation founded in 2013 to run Tor exit nodes in France by collecting donations.

The Tor network is nowadays used by millions of people throughout the world who wish to protect their privacy online. Its made of thousands of relays run by hundreds of volunteers. Instead of relying on individual efforts, Nos Oignons enables money and time to be pooled, so relays can be run with a large bandwidth. The organisation is part of the torservers.net network which brings together 22 organizations with similar principles.

The five servers currently running cost Nos Oignons slightly more than 800€ per month. With enough regular donations, we could even add more!

How are donations used?

The organization turns most of its income into bandwidth for the Tor network. In 2017, 83% of expenses went to hosting relays.

Relay hosting services (82.9%) Legal risk provisioning (10.1%) Administrative services (1.9%) Server amortization (1.1%) Other hosting services (1.0%) Domain names (0.8%) Communication actions (0.8%) Insurance (0.7%) Banking fees (0.4%) Phone and fax (0.2%)
