Fraudulent checks

The Foundation rarely sends out checks, and never without prior discussion with the recipient. Those checks are usually for travel or other reimbursements for GNOME contributors. If you have received a check in the mail from the GNOME Foundation that you were not already expecting, it is likely fraudulent.

Corporate sponsorship

The GNOME Foundation welcomes contributions from companies and other organizations that share our goals. This is primarily done through sponsorship of our conferences or by becoming an advisory board member. Please note that as a 501(c)3, we have limits on the level of attribution we can provide. To avoid donations being classed as advertising, we do not provide links to specific product pages, and all our links are “nofollow”.
