Learn more about who we are and what we do
This year we decided to use our annual fundraiser as an opportunity to share with the world a more detailed look at the work we do here at the FSF. You can learn more about the work we do here at the FSF in our series titled, We want to do more for you. So far there are three installments in the series, but we will continue to add more until our fundraiser ends on January 31st.
Part 1 of the series provides an overview of some of what we accomplish with a staff of "ten dedicated and effective individuals, working with a global network of volunteers and supporters of the free software movement."
Part 2 shares with you the heroics of staff member, Jeanne Rasata, who in addition to helping to coordinate and plan Richard Stallman's grueling travel and speaking schedule, also acts as front-line of communication for nearly all email sent to the FSF, as well being the virtual front-desk for questions and requests from FSF associate members.
Part 3 provides a glimpse into the work of our campaigns team of Matt Lee and Josh Gay, who carry out our advocacy campaigns, as well as a large share of our public relations, fundraising, web development, and graphic design at the FSF.
We hope you enjoy our series and that you will help us achieve our fundraising goals, so we truly can do even more for you and more for free software in 2012.
So, let us know what you think! Your feedback, thoughts, and suggestions are greatly appreciated — email us with the subject "We want to do more series".
