Thank you for a successful fundraiser!

by Miriam Bastian Contributions Published on Jan 23, 2024 06:41 PM

First, generous supporters offered to triple every donation in a matching campaign and the community helped us meet that matching challenge, and now free software supporters like you helped us reach our stretch goal of $425,000! The support we received truly boosts the FSF's advocacy for free software in education and our efforts to educate everybody on the importance of free software.

Now that the fundraiser is officially over, let's take a moment to highlight a few things we did during this time. We started by publishing the Giving Guide and the fall Bulletin. We organized an FSF community meetup and the International Day Against DRM. In addition, we visited Everett High School and talked with approximately sixty cybersecurity and robotics students about free software. And last but not least, the tech team and the licensing team reported about the work they did during the last six months, and about their plans for 2024.

A big thank you to the 2905 people who donated during this fundraiser, joined as FSF associate members, or renewed their membership. Your support helps us to promote and advance computer user freedom around the world! We look forward to a brilliant 2024 with you!

We would love to see you at LibrePlanet 2024. We count the days until the conference starts on May 4. We already announced two keynote speakers: Hayley Tsukayama, associate director of legislative activism at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and free software developer and video creator David Wilson. If you haven't registered yet, please do so to help us prepare and to receive all the information.

Thank you for your support!
