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 to keep the lights on. Your financial support goes towards GNOME conferences, intern sponsors, new releases, staff resources, infrastructure, and so much more!
In the US, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated Giving Tuesday and is a day focused on supporting nonprofits. As a nonprofit, the GNOME Foundation relies on your financial support. No contribution is too big or too small and corporate and personal donations are always welcome. Please join us for our fundraising event today, Tuesday, November 28th, as we take part in the Giving Tuesday movement and ask you to make a contribution to support the GNOME Foundation.
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. https://www.gnome.org/donate/
- 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! https://www.gnome.org/donate/
- 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 2024 and hope we can count on your support during Giving Tuesday. Help us build another great year at GNOME!
Thank you from all of us at the GNOME Foundation.
