The OpenBSD Foundation has been formed for the purpose of supporting the OpenBSD project, and related projects such as OpenSSH, OpenBGPD, OpenNTPD, and OpenCVS.
In particular it will act as a single point of contact for persons and organizations requiring a legal entity to deal with when they wish to support OpenBSD in any way.
The OpenBSD Foundation will initially concentrate on facilitating larger donations of equipment, funds, documentation and resources. Small scale donations should continue to be submitted through the existing mechanisms.
The OpenBSD Foundation corporate charter, bylaws, and goals can be found at http://www.openbsdfoundation.org. The foundation directors may be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The traditional methods of donating to OpenBSD via paypal, bank transfer, credit cards, or pizza delivery will remain available for individuals and organizations with less strict auditing requirements. If you're able to donate the old way, please continue to do so, as it saves the project and the foundation the organizational overhead.
The OpenBSD Foundation's inaugural board of directors is Bob Beck (beck@), Kenneth Westerback (krw@) and Kjell Wooding (kjell@). Thanks for helping to ensure the future of our favorite OS!
