Our associated organisations

The Free Software Foundation Europe is empowering people to control technology. That is a goal which no single organisation can achieve alone. There are many groups who work successfully on this goal. Some help individuals and organisations to understand how Free Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination. Others enhance users' rights by abolishing barriers to Free Software adoption. Or they focus on encouraging people to use and develop Free Software.

No matter what focus or legal status your group has, we believe it is important to join forces and work together to reach our common goals. With our associated organisations we want to show that we are a strong movement. We exchange ideas, coordinate efforts, motivate each other, and find opportunities to work together on specific projects.

If you decided in your group to become an associated organisation, please get in contact with us.

If you are a company and want to show your support for our goals, we recommend to become a donor of the FSFE or one of our associated organisations below.
