The OWASP Foundation

The OWASP Foundation was established in 2004 as a not-for-profit charitable organization in the United States to ensure the ongoing availability and support for our work at OWASP. OWASP is an international organization and the OWASP Foundation supports OWASP efforts around the world.

Tax Status: 501c3 Not-For-Profit Organization

The OWASP Foundation is a U.S. recognized 501c3 not-for-profit charitable organization. The OWASP Foundation received its formal recognition by the U.S. Government of its 501c3 status in late 2004. This not-for-proft status allows contributors to deduct any donations made to the OWASP Foundation.

OWASP's U.S. Employer Identification Number (EIN) is: 20-0963503

Tax Deductability of Payments to OWASP

OWASP membership fees, OWASP conferences fees, OWASP conference sponsorships, and OWASP banner ads are not considered tax deductible donations due to the benefits the paying organization receives.

Direct donations to OWASP are fully tax deductible given OWASP's recognized U.S. not-for-profit status.
