2016 FOSS donation: Call for nominations
At this time of year we think about how we can help out open source projects with a financial donation and as before, we'd like you to be part of the decision-making process.
Last year, we donated a total of US$125,000 to five different projects including the EFF's Privacy Badger and Girl Develop It, based on the theme of mainstream privacy. This year the theme remains privacy-focused but is also more closely aligned with our vision which is to raise the standard of trust online. The donation pool amount has yet to be decided but will be split between 6-10 projects, half of which will be chosen from community nominations.
So, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to suggest projects that both:
- Help increase trust online;
- Would benefit from (and make good use of) a small donation.
Please comment with your suggestions using the template here. Repeat for multiple nominations (limit to 3).
I believe this project is raising the standard of trust online because _____
