CRANS provides and manages broadband connections to their network and the Internet to residents of the campus. They also promote free software by running Install Parties and hosting official mirrors for software such as VideoLAN.
CRANS has previously funded open source projects such as FSF, Debian, and OpenWRT. They chose to give their annual donation to OpenBSD/OpenSSH because they saw the call for funding and have been using OpenBSD daily for 3 years as it is the only OS that they can use for their secure WiFi deployment which is based on IPsec. Of course, they are also large users of OpenSSH.
I think that it's incredible to see such a large donation from a non-commercial entity and I'd like to personally say thank you to CRANS! This money will definitely help further OpenBSD and OpenSSH development and I'm sure CRANS will reap the rewards of their own donation.
