UPLIFT! by FOSS Responders

Come lift our community in a virtual event providing in-kind and financial support for organizations affected by the profound disruptions -- to our economy and our community -- of Covid-19.

Friday, May 22, 2020, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (UTC-08:00)
Created by: FOSS Responders


Join Indeed, Open Source Collective, Open Collective, Linux Fund, GitHub, Google, Sentry, Ethereum Foundation, Digital Ocean, and the Sloan Foundation as we come together to UPLIFT! our amazing open source community.

Brought to you by FOSS Responders, we'll be providing open organizations hit by the economic fallout from COVID19 with over $100K in support. Conference cancellations have caused financial loss, unmet fundraising trajectories, and missed business opportunities. Now is the time to participate in the sustainability of open software organizations. Now is the time to be a part of its survival.

You can sign up now FOR FREE!  If you choose to financially support to the event, your donations of up to $5K will be matched by generous donation from Indeed.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]! Otherwise, we hope to see you there.
