Public Pond server at the WHS
Everyone can get a free account on our Pond
server. Pond (still experimental!) realizes a new form of asynchronous message exchange (like EMail),
but with OTR encryption (like XMPP/OTR) and no visible metadata at all - so you can have totally secure,
anonymous communication that will not allow adversaries to generate any form of communication profile
between peers whatsoever.
We consider this to be the next-generation email protocol. The address of our pond server is:

Transparency Report 2012 for "Project 04: Enduring freedom of information" (WikiLeaks)
Download as PDF:
This is the third transparency report from the Wau Holland Stiftung for “Project 04:
Enduring freedom of information” which supports WikiLeaks. The following table gives an
overview of the chronological development of donations (incoming funds) and project expenses
(outgoing funds) for the years 2010 to 2012:
*) The difference between incoming and outgoing funds is the volume of
the reserve fund, which was allocated by the foundation in 2011 to cover potential
follow-up costs (for example, taxation resulting from the loss of Wau Holland
Stiftung's charitable status) and necesary administrative expenditures for the
project. This reserve fund will be continued in 2013.
It can easily be seen from this table that the development of donations over the past two
years has declined substantially, and is currently no longer able to provide the earlier levels
support for the project.
Since January 2013 the foundation has only been able to cover expenditures in essential
infrastructure, such as servers. Better support for the project will only be possible with
increasing donations for Project 04 in 2013; the foundation is committed to continuing its
support for WikiLeaks in such a case.

Donations to Wau Holland Foundation tax-deductable EU-wide
As Tax exemption (charitable status) is granted again to WHF from 2011 onwards,
you, as an European citizen, will be able to donate to the foundation
and in addition, write it off your income tax. This is because of a ruling of the
European Court in 2009 (Decision C‑318_07), which mandates that every EU country
must honor the tax exemption decision of any other EU country.
We are a foundation related to the Chaos Computer Club,
that was launched by the father and close friends of the late "information philosopher"
Wau Holland (a.k.a. Herwart Holland-Moritz) to promote and pursue his unique freethinking
in relation to freedom of communication and informational self-determination.
