Keep OPG/QueerNet Running in 2018

$2,095 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 29 people in 12 months
The Online Policy Group (OPG) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to online policy research, outreach, and action on issues such as access, privacy, digital defamation, and the digital divide. Additionally, it focuses on Internet participants’ civil liberties and human rights, like access, privacy, safety, and serving schools, libraries, disabled, elderly, youth, women, and sexual, gender, and ethnic minorities.

A volunteer-run organization funded almost entirely by individual donations, the OPG is headquartered in San Francisco and was founded by StarDust Doherty on July 21, 2000, growing in 2001 to include the QueerNet Project, the first LGBTQ+ service on the Internet, providing community discussion and hosting services since 1991. 

Your support is needed to keep our services on the air through the end of 2018.

New year, new update on the Online Policy Group fundraising campaign.

In addition to the $1.964 in the online campaign, we have received $2026.21 in offline check and PayPal contributions.

This puts us at $3990.21... or less than $10 short of the 80% mark.

We are in the home stretch. Please help us across the finish line. You can donate via this campaign, or offline via PayPal or check following the instructions at

Less than a week left of 2017. It would be great if we could enter 2018 with the funds on-hand we need for a year's operation.

In addition to the $1,819 donated on GoFundMe, we have received $916,21 offline, for a total of $2735.21, or almost 55% to our goal.

Please give what you can. OPG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, so contributions are tax-deductible in the US to the extent allowed by law. (Note that you may not choose to itemize next year with higher standard deductions, so take advantage of the possibility before the end of 2017!)

To make a recurring donation, see the directions at - you will also find directions to send a one-time donation by check or PayPal instead of GoFundMe there.

Thanks so much.
