January 4, 2013

We want to thank everyone for helping us exceed our fundraising goal for 2012. We are thrilled to report we raised $753,378. And, checks are still coming in! We should have final numbers by mid-January. Donation receipts will be emailed and mailed out by the end of January. If you made a donation and you can’t find your name on our donor list, please let us know. We received so many donations in December, that we missed adding some names.

We can’t thank you enough for your overwhelming support of the FreeBSD Foundation and Project. As we prepare our 2013 budget, we are very excited to be putting more funding in the Project Development area. In fact, we are always interested in hearing your project proposals. Do you have an idea of something you’d like to work on and need funding to help you accomplish it? Click here to find out about our project proposal process.

We also plan to help more developers attend BSD-based conferences. You can find out how to apply for a travel grant here:


As the new year starts, we are grateful for the working with such passionate people who give their free time to the FreeBSD Project. The commitment that you all share in making FreeBSD the best OS out there inspires and drives us!
