Bare Bones Software president and founder Rich Siegel said: "We have tremendous respect for the EFF's role as a defender of civil liberties in the electronic age. We’re proud of the part our products play in their mission, and are pleased to offer our material support of their efforts."
EFF activist Ren Bucholz said: "We’re thrilled at the support. We've been using BBEdit for years, and it’s terrific to know they make great products and care about civil liberties."
The EFF is a digital civil liberties group founded in 1990 to promote free expression and privacy online.
