FSFE needs your donation to work for Free Software in 2016


Lots of people and companies in our society benefit from Free Software. The Free Software Foundation Europe is empowering people to control technology since 2001. To make a difference in our work, we aim at 140.000€ in donations until 31 January, of which we already received 60.000€.

Please help us to continue to work for Free Software by donating now:

Our donors recently enabled us to achieve the following successes:

From next year on we want to focus on pushing our demand for all publicly funded software to be published as Free Software, and for everyone's right to experiment with their own hard- and software.

To achieve those goals we will:

In addition we will maintain our ongoing efforts to abolish barriers to software freedom and encourage people to use and develop Free Software. One essential activity remains guiding companies to move to Free Software by educating their legal departments to understand Free Software licences.

Still, there are growing challenges: opaque international treaties and complex policy processes demand careful approaches to address software freedom effectively. We need to be able to keep up with such developments.

That is why your support is crucial for us. So please support us as by becoming a sustaining member or with a corporate donation.
