"The Calyx Institute is a fantastic non-profit organization that puts the privacy of its users first.

The Calyx Institute has been operating for five years on a shoe-string budget. Unlike some other projects, we don't have large government or foundation grants - we rely primarily on the donations of people like you to keep the organization afloat.
We are pleased to report that the Internal Revenue Service has recognized The Calyx Institute as a public charity that is tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the tax code.
This means that contributions made to the organization, going all the way back to our date of foundation ( May 19, 2010 ) are tax deductible to the extent of the law.
