Matching Donation for New Conservancy Supporters
Anonymous Donor Offers “Double Match” to Supporters Who Join Now
December 8, 2014
Software Freedom Conservancy today announces a match donation by an anonymous donor to its new Supporter program. For every $1 in Supporter donations, this donor will give Conservancy $2, up to $5,000 in all. This match effectively triples the donation made when you become a supporter now.
This donor (who chose to remain anonymous) commented,
Free Software is the cornerstone of a free society. By supporting Conservancy, we ensure that the developers working on this software can get the support and funding they need to continue their vital work. With this matching program, I am challenging you to step up and show your support for these projects to ensure that they stay free and open forever.
Under the Supporter program, for an annual donation of $120, donors receive:
- an “Official Supporter” badge for display on their personal websites,
- a printable “Official Supporter” card,
- public listing on the Supporter section of Conservancy's website (optional),
- a Conservancy T-Shirt.
