The Foundation is pleased to announce our 2007 Q1 financial data has been published.

The Foundation is a proud sponsor of BSDCan 2007. Stop by and say hi at our booth. With a $30 or more donation, you can receive a copy of the book “Building BSD Rootkits”. Ten copies of these books were generously donated from No Starch Press.

We have extended our deadline for accepting travel grant applications for BSDCan 2007. If you are a FreeBSD developer and need help with travel expenses, please fill out and submit a Travel Grant Request Form by April 20, 2007. Applications will not be accepted after this date.

Thank you to everyone who applied for a travel grant for AsiaBSDCon. With the help of the conference committee everyone who applied received funding.

The Foundation helped with the FreeBSD booth at SCALE Feb. 10-11. Thanks to everyone who made a donation at the booth! Check out Jem Matzan’s interview with FreeBSD Foundation Director, Sam Leffler.

We have published our 2007 budget. The budget is based on the funds available at the beginning of the year. We were hoping to set our budget at $211,000, which represents a 10% increase from last year’s spending. But, we want to stay conservative, and watch how our fundraising efforts go this year. We have set our 2007 fundraising goal to $250,000. Part of this funding will help offset the loss from last year.

Would you like to have a link to your website on our donor page? We now will include your link with a $5000 or more donation to the foundation. Your logo will be included for donations of $10,000 or more. Click here for more details.
