Controversial immigration reform group has greater financial transparency than EFF

Despite a board of directors that includes prominent information technologists such as Brewster “Internet Archive” Kahle, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a San Francisco-based nonprofit founded in 1990 that defends the digital rights of consumers, probably will not be winning any digital rights awards for financial disclosure and transparency (D&T) in the near future. Here’s an update to EFF’s digital commitment to D&T, for all of you consumers who are recording the numbers at home:

2008-2009 Annual Report

2007 Annual Report

2006 Annual Report

Contrast that with these documents, all posted on the website of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a controversial national non-profit organization based in Washington that seeks to reform United States immigration policies:

2008 Annual Report and IRS Form 990

2007 Annual Report and IRS Form 990

2006 Annual Report and IRS Form 990

2005 Annual Report and IRS Form 990

2004 Annual Report and IRS Form 990

• 2003 Annual Report

2002 Annual Report

2001 Annual Report

Memo to Brewster Kahle: The Internet Archive has a copy of Rules and Regulations of the Insane Asylum of California (1861) but doesn’t have a copy of EFF’s 2001 Annual Report?
