The Whistleblower Support Fund is a nonprofit organization created by Dr. Donald Soeken to provide support to whistleblowers both in corporate and governmental institutions to ensure that they will be able to exercise their rights to free speech, conscientiously perform their duties and remain free from harassment and intimidation.

Protecting whistleblowers’ rights and their ability to expose fraud, governmental abuse, safety and environmental problems, and misuse of authority helps to create government accountability and a society more open to dissent. Protection of individuals’ rights to speak out according to their convictions and principles also provides impetus for reform and empowerment of other citizens and grassroots groups.
