AirVPN not acknowledged on EFF's donation page?

Recommended Posts

https://airvpn.org/mission/ and https://www.eff.org/thanks

AirVPN's own page states being a "Super Major Donor (2500 $/year; recurring)". As far as I can tell they've changed it recently and these are now considered "legacy" thanks (sounds weird I know) but it'd have put AirVPN on a reputable bracket with not too many companies there: "Innovator Level ($2,500)"
I've done some digging at it appears there must have been two separate systems for EFF donations:
  1. The regular donation page (that used to list names and specifically Super Major Donor)
  2. A Separate donation for companies that will end up on this honorary thanks page
From this digging on the Internet Archive I also got that AirVPN has been (according to own website) donating to EFF for a very long time but failed capitalize on this opportunity to be included on the list. Meanwhile some other companies/names have been contributing the bare minimum (Leader Level ($1,000) to be included on that page.

I thought to bring this to your attention.

Thank you!

The AirVPN founder has been working pro bono for EFF (Europe, not USA) for a couple of years, and that's not a thing that can be acknowledged in the donation pages or evaluated monetarily.

Anyway, it must be said that we have not donated to EFF during 2021, but we will.

Kind regards

Any hint on what he achieved while being active for them? Even voluntary work can breed something to be worth mentioning somewhere, rarely even headlines. :)
