Help us unlock our match challenge

November 22, 2022

We’re pleased to announce an ambitious match challenge for this fundraising season.

As a non-profit dedicated to upholding user freedoms and protections against corporate and other interests that may not be in the public’s general interest, we rely upon the donations from our individual sustainers. Software Freedom Conservancy has been growing and is able to take on the work it does thanks to the incredible support of individuals who care about an organization who stands up for the equitable, ethical and end user focused technologies.

This year’s match is comprised of donations solely by individual donors — a few large anonymous donors as well as a handful of smaller donors who are planning to give just a little bit more this year to challenge SFC supporters to make their annual Sustainer contribution go further. These smaller donors include (in first name alphabetical order): Asumu Takikawa, Elizabeth Joseph, John Sullivan, Justin Flory and Will Norris, all of whom care deeply about software freedom. We are excited to highlight them over the next few weeks.

These generous donations raise our match fund to $104,759, so be sure to donate by January 16 to maximize their donations!

This year has been packed with growth for SFC and exciting work in free software, including our historic consumer rights lawsuit to promote copyleft, the diversity and inclusion efforts of Outreachy & The Institute for Computing in Research, and our support of all of our wonderful member projects.

Thank you so much for your support and please consider becoming a Sustainer now.
