Support software freedom with the new FSF credit card

by root Contributions Published on Oct 21, 2009 04:08 PM
As of 2016, this credit card program has been cancelled. Thanks to all who supported the FSF in this way.

(Please don't let the thought of supporting us encourage you to start using a credit card if you don't already, or discourage you from buying anonymously with big-brother-resistant cash.)

Funds from our new credit card program will help fund the GNU project and support the mission of the FSF to preserve, protect and promote the freedom to use, study, copy, modify, and redistribute computer software, and to defend the rights of free software users.

If you use a credit card, sign up for the Free Software Foundation Visa Platinum Rewards Card and support the FSF with every purchase. There's a $50 donation to the FSF by the bank when you first use the card, plus ongoing contributions of 30 basis points or .3% of retail transactions. US residents only. More details about the card.

...a contest, too

The current FSF credit card has the "floating gnu" on it. We're looking to offer other card designs, designs that reflect, in some visual way, the activist spirit of the FSF and its supporters.

Pleas submit photos and artwork. They can be original, or links to public domain images on the net. By sending the image, you also agree to make it available as CC-BY. If we choose your image for the cards, we'll send you the t-shirt of your choice from the FSF store.

Send them as SVG, JPEG, or PNG, in the best quality you can manage, to

If the image is from the web, send a link, with a link to the license info. Note: If you send artwork, don't include any text. We know that's annoying, but it complicates things for a few reasons. Also, I won't be able to get back to all of you individually, so thanks in advance for your help, and good luck!
