We are excited to announce that UPLIFT! by FOSS Responders is just around the corner! The whole team, all 90+ of us, were blown away by the community’s support. We had 17 organizations apply for COVID-19 related support and funding.
For the event, we narrowed the organizations down to ten:
- Apache Software Foundation
- Drupal Association
- Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
- Free Software Foundation
- GNOME Foundation
- Open Source Matters, Inc.
- Plain Schwarz/Berlin Buzzwords
- Python Software Foundation
- Tor Project
The FOSS Responders team is ecstatic to announce that in partnership with many organizations listed below, we’ll be distributing over $100,000 USD to the participating organizations!
However, we’re not done yet! We’re also inviting event participants to donate. Indeed has committed to match participant donations up to $5,000 USD. Donations and matched funds will be distributed equally to the participating organizations.
We had more applications than space, and we’d like to shine a light on those organizations that were not selected to participate in the UPLIFT! event. Their applications will be reviewed in a second round by the FOSS Responders’ general organization committee for future support opportunities. We encourage you to support these great organizations.
Thank You Partners!
This would not have been possible without the support of our partners. A HUGE thank you to:
