While some of the donors did not provide their names—such as the person behind the current top donation of $215,000—the vast majority did provide them, including American software billionaire Thomas Siebel, who donated $90,000 to the "freedom convoy."

While GiveSendGo does allow donors to make their donations public, many chose to use their company's name or omit their names entirely, so the leaked database contains a lot of information that was never meant to be shared, data like donors' full names, email addresses, and location.

Analysis of the leaked data by extremism researcher Amarnath Amarasingam shows that while the majority of donors come from the U.S. (56%) and Canada (29%), there are also thousands of donations from overseas, including the U.K., Australia, and Ireland.
