NLnet NGI0 Entrust funding get!
Published on October 28, 2022 by tobi

Hello sloth afficionados!

We’ve got some cool news to share :) A while back, we sent an application off to NLnet as part of one of their NGI0 Entrust funding rounds.

We got word back earlier this week that we’ve been granted the funding we asked for! This means that for the next year or so, subject to final negotiations with NLnet, GoToSocial will have ~50k euros to spend on research + development.

In short, this means that tobi (current most-obsessed dev) will be able to work on GoToSocial full time for the next year, without having to get a part-time job somewhere. This also means we can pay Maloki and f0x for their ongoing admin work + frontend work, respectively.

The NLnet grant gives tobi in particular a lot more financial security and peace of mind, ensuring that development can keep moving along at a good pace. Even so, we will still be keeping donations open to our LiberaPay and OpenCollective pages.

Your very kind (!) donations will be used to pay for additional things like server costs, art, design work, and also put towards the pool for paying contributors for their code (once we figure out the best way of doing this).

Thank you for reading, and have a nice weekend!
