Donate to a Sponsored Project


Women in Security & Privacy (WISP) is a fiscally-sponsored project of Community Initiatives that promotes the development, advancement, and inclusion of women in security and privacy.

WISP is a proud partner of Black Hat Conference 2017 and DefCon 25 and we are excited to attend this year’s events. WISP and its partners will co-host several educational activities, peer-to-peer sessions, and networking mixers. We are very excited to seeing you there.

As a nonprofit, we depend on donations from our community and sponsors to accomplish our mission. Support from donors like you have enabled WISP to expand our workshop intensives, peer-to-peer forums, career training & development, TANDEM peer-to-peer mentorship, and networking programs. 

Make a donation of at least $35 or more today and select your "Thank You Gift" that you can pick up at our DEF CON 25 or Black Hat booths in Las Vegas.  The WePay platform charges approximately 4% per donation. To ensure that your intended donation amount goes to WISP, we would appreciate if you select "cover the transaction fee" upon checkout.
