Thanks to the free software community's giving, we have already raised more than $250,000 toward our goal of $450,000 by January 31st, 2016. As we look to the new year, we at the Free Software Foundation are feeling optimistic about our plans for 2016.
But we need you to help our light shine brighter: our winter fundraiser is our biggest fundraising period each year. It sets the tone for the work we are able to do in the coming year and the growth we'd like to achieve. If everyone reading this message were to donate at least $5 to the FSF right now, we would meet our goal today.
The FSF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so gifts to the FSF are tax-deductible in the US, and this is your last chance to give in 2015.
Happy GNU Year -- and Happy Hacking!
