GNOME Foundation


Services & Impact

Support GNOME with a one time donation or by becoming a Friend of GNOME

and donating monthly!

The GNOME Foundation is a non-profit organization that furthers the goals of the GNOME Project, helping it to create a free software computing platform for the general public that is designed to be elegant, efficient, and easy to use.

We think that world class software should be available and useable by 

everyone, regardless of where they are from or their specific needs. 

With this in mind, the GNOME community builds the GNOME desktop 

environment and tools like GTK, GStreamer, and Orca. Additionally, we host 

hackfests and conferences around the world; hold newcomer workshops to 

get people involve with GNOME for the first time; have paid internships for 

people from backgrounds underrepresented in tech; and do all of this while 

upholding the principles of user freedom and open source.

Donations support:

  • GNOME's development infrastructure, which is essential for all our development work;
  • Travel sponsorship, for community members to attend hackfests and conferences;
  • Outreach activities, such as hack camps and GNOME's presence at conferences; and
  • Other activities and initiatives in support of the GNOME project and community.
