<h1>The Software Freedom Conservancy</h1>

<p>The Software Freedom Conservancy is an organization composed of Free
and Open Source Software (FOSS) projects. As a fiscal sponsor for FOSS
projects, the Conservancy provides member projects with free financial
and administrative services, but does not involve itself with
technological and artistic decisions.</p>

<p>By joining the Conservancy, member FOSS projects obtain the benefits of
a formal legal structure while keeping themselves focused on software
development.  These benefits include, most notably, the ability to collect
earmarked project donations and protection from personal liability for the
developers of the project.  Another benefit of joining the Conservancy is
that projects can use it to hold assets, which are managed by the
Conservancy on behalf of and at the direction of the project.  The
Conservancy is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, so member projects can
receive tax-deductible donations to the extent allowed by law.  To make a
donation to the Conservancy or to its member projects,
please <a href="/donate/">visit our donations page</a>.</p>

<p>If you think your FOSS project might benefit from joining the
Conservancy, please <a href="/about/contact/">contact us</a>.</p>
<p>The Software Freedom Conservancy is a not-for-profit organization that
  helps promote, improve, develop, and defend Free, Libre, and Open Source
  Software (FLOSS) projects.  Conservancy provides a non-profit home and
  infrastructure for FLOSS projects.  This allows FLOSS developers to
  focus on what they do best &mdash; writing and improving FLOSS for the
  general public &mdash; while Conservancy takes care of the projects' needs that
  do not relate directly to software development.</p>
