Update 2015-12-01: How could I have forgotten to mention that there’s a donor match  going on right now? If you become one of the next 50 new Conservancy supporters, a donor is matching up to $6000! Please help Conservancy get every dollar they can from this generous donor.
Few organizations are as effective per dollar as the Software Freedom Conservancy .
The list of what they’ve done in 2015 alone  is impressive — and that’s before you consider how small a staff they do it with.
You’ll notice that link was actually to their 2015 fundraiser page , which explains why they need to raise money now, and exactly what they plan to do with it. (Did I mention high marks for transparency?)
Today, for Giving Tuesday, I became a Conservancy Supporter again, and hope you’ll consider doing the same . The free software movement doesn’t run on good will. It runs on dedicated people giving their all, and those who do it full-time need support from everyone who understands why this movement is important.
