Need a last-minute gift? Gift an FSF membership!

by Jeanne Rasata Contributions Published on Dec 23, 2020 03:17 PM

Do you need a last-minute gift for the techie or activist in your life? Want something that will keep on giving for the rest of the year? Concerned about spending money on yet another dust collector or future regift? Is "retail therapy" actually not that therapeutic for you? Are the myriad options generating a cloud of anxiety over your head?

Free yourself from the consumer funk and this "paradox of choice" by opting to give your loved one a gift that will raise their social consciousness, create more lasting cheer, and defend #UserFreedom. Gift a Free Software Foundation (FSF) associate membership!

We've just made some improvements to our system to make purchasing a gift membership very easy. The new system provides you with a code and a printable screen so that you can gift a physical object if you like.

With a gifted membership, your friends and loved ones will be joining a vibrant movement for software freedom, and helping us to amplify the free software message everywhere. Each new member exponentially increases our reach, and our ability to make change. A membership gift will help sustain the FSF in 2021, and keep us fighting the good fight for computer users' freedom.

Your friend, colleague, or loved one will be able to redeem their membership from the moment your donation is complete, and enjoy for one year the many benefits that come with a membership, including a USB member card, email forwarding, access to our Jitsi Meet videoconferencing server, access to the member forum, discounts in the FSF shop and on ThinkPenguin hardware, and many more.

Your gift would be fully tax-deductible in the USA.
