Welcome to the FreeBSD Foundation's website!
Since our founding in 2000, the FreeBSD Foundation has played a growing role in supporting the FreeBSD Project and community. Here you'll find information about all our recent activities. From managing intellectual property issues and funding development projects, to supporting technical conferences and developer collaboration, we've been very busy. I encourage you take a few minutes to browse our website and learn more about what we do.
As a 501(c)3 charity, all of our work is funded by donations. We believe strongly that the community we serve and those who trust us with their donations deserve insight into how we manage our finances. For this reason, our books are published quarterly and can be reviewed in the financial section of our website.
This year marks a significant milestone for the FreeBSD Foundation. Based on the success of our 2012 fundraising campaign, we have posted our first $1,000,000 budget. Our financial strength has allowed us to hire technical staff, almost triple our funded development spending, and to invest in the critical infrastructure needed by the FreeBSD community to build, develop, test, and distribute FreeBSD to millions of users. Our growing capabilities, all made possible by your generous donations, are proof that the FreeBSD Foundation will be a faithful supporter of FreeBSD for decades to come.
We hope to continue our growth in the years to come, but that will only be possible through continued public support. I hope you not only benefit from our work, but find it compelling enough to consider sending us a donation.
Enjoy the site!
