Become a Partner

In order to ensure Shadowserver’s long term sustainability, on October 4th 2022, we officially launched the Shadowserver Alliance. You can read the launch blog and quotes from our initial founding Alliance partners, as well as selected key stakeholders here.

The Alliance is a new, more structured way for partners to support our continuing public benefit services, through partnerships, which also provides partners with a range of additional benefits on top of our standard free service offerings. Shadowserver’s free public benefit services remain unchanged.

We are actively seeking additional partners to join the Shadowserver Alliance.

If your organization would like to join help support Shadowserver’s essential public benefit services, please contact us via our website contact page or by email at contact(at)

We look forward to partnering with you and helping to make the Internet safer for everyone.

If your organization cannot easily join the Alliance, we always welcome sponsorships, donations or grants in other forms and at various levels. We can also discuss voluntary invoicing options or funding of specific projects or services.

Pre-Alliance Funding

Prior to the launch of the Shadowserver Alliance on October 4th 2022, Shadowserver’s funding came entirely from sponsorships, grants and charitable donations; by requesting and paying voluntary invoices; or through funding of specific projects and services.  You can read more about the generous support we received from the community here. These funding paths are still possible. Our continued success is all thanks to sponsors, partners and individuals who share our vision of a more secure Internet.
