ORG is its supporters. The central team’s role is to spot the best opportunities to put our collective intention and use our resources to best effect. Without a solid foundation of people willing to support ORG financially and take on volunteer work, ORG would not be able to carry out the day-to-day activities that support its mission. More importantly, it is ORG’s supporters who, by donating their money and time, also lend us their strength – as an organisation ORG has more weight because of the fact that so many people are willing to dig into their own pockets to support us.
There are two main ways you can help:
We accept one-off donations but it is the regular donations from our supporters that keep ORG ticking. Most ORG supporters pay between £5 and £10 each month but some give more. The best way to support ORG is through a monthly standing order, which you can set up via the ORG website.
If you’re already supporting ORG financially, you can help us by letting your friends and colleagues know why they should be too. We also accept donations in kind – over the last two years supporters have donated office space, computer hardware, raffle prizes and much, much more.

The Open Rights Group depends upon the work of expert volunteers. Whether you have technical or design skills that we can make use of, whether you have expertise you can share, or whether you just have enough time to write to your MP on a subject that vexes you, your involvement is essential. We support volunteers either to work remotely, from wherever they are in the country, or to come work with the staff in our physical office.
ORG needs your time and your voice. If you’re interested, email michael AT openrightsgroup DOT org
