The Open Knowledge Foundation Needs Your Support

We have never been so busy! Over the past 18 months we have been working with hacks and hackers, citizens and civil servants, students and scientists to open up knowledge which should be available for everyone. We want to enable as many people as possible to use this knowledge to improve the world.

Just some of our highlights:

We held our biggest annual event to date, with over 1000 people coming together for talks, workshops and hackathons at OKFestival 2012 in Helsinki.

We have worked with citizens and CSOs to load spending data from over 40 countries into OpenSpending.

We have established Panton Fellowships for early career stage scientists to promote open access policies and practices in their domain.

We are working to open up the world’s culture with OpenGLAM and are promoting the idea of the cultural commons to a broader public with The Public Domain Review.

We believe the best way to have a lasting impact on how public knowledge is shared and used is to build stronger communities that will continue to push for change.

We need your support to make this happen. We would like you to consider becoming an Open Knowledge Foundation Supporter and either make a one-off donation or give a regular monthly contribution to support our growing network.

These funds will help us organise events, establish new local groups and working groups, maintain websites and respond to new challenges such as Hans Rosling’s recent plea for greater transparency around CO2 data.

As a token of our appreciation, we are offering beautiful sets of Public Domain Review postcards for those who sign up before Christmas (full details at okfn.org/support).

We hope you consider supporting our activities at this important time.
