If you are an open source project leader or maintainer and would like to learn more about the grant application process for a variety of funders, please join @sumanah for this valuable session as part of MozFest 2021 (registration required!) on 10 March at 20:15 UTC.
When I tell people about grants they could get to help fund work on open source software projects, sometimes they are surprised because they didn’t know such grants existed. I share:
- sample foundations and funders (such as Mozilla, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, NLNet, and Comcast) who want to fund open source software projects, and how much they’re paying out
- a quick case study on how the Python Software Foundation got funding from Open Tech Fund to improve security, accessibility, and localization for PyPI
- key steps in figuring out a good project idea, budgeting, hiring, and submitting
- how your volunteer groups can follow the lead of the new Project Funding Working Group at the PSF
