  • Post category:News

With hundreds of contributors all over the world working on GNOME projects, we’re doing what we can to move the project forward! But we still need help. Our organization is a 501(c)3 (in the United States) and relies on financial contributions in order to keep the lights on. Your financial support goes towards GNOME conferences, intern sponsors, new releases, staff resources, infrastructure, and so much more!  We are excited about the future of the GNOME project and ask for your support with a donation during our annual fundraising campaign. 

Giving Tuesday also marks Day 1 of our annual campaign drive which continues till the end of the year! And, we need your help reaching our goal. While a financial contribution helps, we know there are many ways to help support our fundraising. We’ve included some non-financial ways you can help:

  • Share or repost GNOME social media messages. Help us get the message out!
  • Make a donation request on behalf of GNOME! Ask friends and family to contribute to an organization that is important to you. Remember to share why GNOME is important to you. Start your own campaign today:
  • Use the upcoming holidays to ask for contributions in lieu of presents. This is a great thing to do for birthdays and the upcoming holiday season!
  • Take advantage of your company match program. Many organizations will match your donation – make sure you are taking advantage of all the ways you can donate!

We are excited for 2023 and hope we can count on your support during Giving Tuesday and our annual campaign drive. Help us build another great year at GNOME!

Thank you from all of us at the GNOME Foundation.
