The Tor Project has been in the forefront in advocating for the online privacy of users. Because of this, the projects of Tor including their Tor browser has attracted a buzzling community made of millions of users that is ever growing.
While Tor has a buzzling community that businesses can tap into, Tor does not provide businesses that opportunity previously. However, this has changed.
Tor Project Membership Program
On the 31st day of the month of August, 2020, Tor made a press release announcing the launch of the Tor Project Membership Program.
Businesses should be particularly interested in this membership program because it affords them a golden opportunity for them to get their businesses in the eyes and minds of the buzzling Tor Project community users. And already, Avast, DuckDuckGo, Insurgo, Mullvad VPN, and Team Cymru has already taken advantage of this opportunity.

As mentioned earlier, the Tor Project community members is not only large with millions of users, but it is also buzzling.

After you have made that donation, you (your business) will have unrestricted access to them for the rest of that year.

Why Tor Created the Membership Program
For years, prior to the time I am writing this post, Tor has relied on grants from governments and others in order to support their projects. To the Tor team, this method of generating funds for their projects is both slow and archaic.
This is because, the grant proposal submission, review, and approval process can force them to delay their project for sometimes more than a year. And seeing that the software and online environment is ever changing, it will make it very difficult for them to come up with newer projects that will adapt easily to the change.
