## Cy Pres Awards – Consumer Privacy and Privacy Online

Consumer privacy _cy pres_ awards can help the Tor Project to educate individuals and organizations about how to retain their privacy online, advocate for privacy protections, and build important free, open source technologies that prioritize privacy.
