The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Boston, MA, USA. For thirty years, we have been seen as a guiding light for the free software movement, and we rely on individuals like you to support the FSF's mission to preserve, protect and promote the freedom to use, study, copy, modify and redistribute computer software, and to defend the rights of free software users. With your help, we can raise $450,000 to continue sharing free software around the world, from the halls of government to the classroom to your home, by shining a light on the dark side of proprietary software and helping important free software projects thrive. And if we raise more, we can hire more people who will work to protect your freedom.
