We’re pleased to announce our first funded project from the accepted project proposals. Click here to read more. We will be announcing other projects soon.

Announcing a new Fund-raising goal for 2008. Our dollar amount is the same, but we’ve added a new goal of 1000 donors for this year. This incentive is to help us maintain our public charity status.

We are kicking off our End-of-Year Fund Raising Drive! Our goal this year is to raise over $300,000. Go to our Donate Page to find out how to make a donation.

We proudly sponsored NYCBSDCon Oct. 11-12, EuroBSDCon Oct. 18-19, and meetBSD Nov. 15-16.
