Happy holidays from OpenHatch!

by Karen December 25th, 2013


The three-week-long matching period of OpenHatch’s fundraiser ended yesterday. During that time, OpenHatch raised $9801.98 from individual donors! While our anonymous matching challenge funder was initially planning to match up to a cap of $5000, he or she has decided to match all of the funds given to OpenHatch during that period.

That means that thanks to supporters like you donating and getting the word out, we’ve raised almost $20,000 in the last three weeks to support free software community outreach and diversity! That’s more that OpenHatch has ever raised in previous years from individual donors.

Wow. Thank you, so very much. These donations will enable us to continue the Open Source Comes to Campus program in 2014, teaching the next generation how to participate in free, open source software projects.

If you haven’t donated yet to OpenHatch, it’s not too late–our fundraising drive continues until the end of the year. You can make your tax-deductible* donation today at

From all of us at OpenHatch, I wish you a merry Christmas and hope your holidays are peaceful, snug, and warm.
