The OpenBSD project received a new x230 Thinkpad  from Linux Fund this month.  This grant will allow OpenBSD developer Jasper Adriaanse to improve Ivy Bridge support in OpenBSD and continue ports development.  

Do you have a project that could use funding? Drop us a line at funding@linuxfund.org.

Story
Tagline
Giving back to open source since 1999.
Introduction

Linux Fund is a community-neutral 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides financial and administrative support to the open source community. We have given away over $750,000 to open source events and projects around the world since our founding in 1999 using funds raised through our line of credit cards and direct donations.

Our primary focus is to bring promising OSI-compliant ​software projects to production status and foster the community efforts surrounding them.

We have helped dozens of projects and events around the world with income from our line of credit cards and are actively expanding our reach outside of North America.
