FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE From: The OpenBSD Foundation Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: January 4, 2008 THE OPENBSD FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES FIRST CORPORATE DONATIONS The OpenBSD Foundation is privileged to announce the receipt of its first corporate cash donations. The very first donation was received from Norwegian network engineers SystemNet AS. This was followed very shortly by several significant anonymous donations, as well as contributions from Hewlett Packard and Google. Many thanks to our corporate donors. All donations were received soon after the Foundation announced its existence, enabling the Foundation to start operations and perfect its donation handling. These donations have enabled the Foundation to assume the costs of OpenBSD's networking expenses, and begin to acquire several key pieces of hardware for development and infrastructure. The OpenBSD Foundation is a Canadian federally incorporated not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the support of OpenBSD and related projects. For more details please visit our website at www.openbsdfoundation.org. Corporations and other organizations wishing to support OpenBSD with donations of money or equipment can contact the directors of the Foundation at email@example.com.
