New Friends of GNOME

We have just released the new Friends of GNOME website! It’s not only a new website, we now have:

  • Much more clear presentation of the program which we hope will help us on getting more donors;
  • “Adopt a Hacker” option, which allows you to subscribe for a monthly $10 donation;
  • New gifts for donors: mugs, t-shirts, postcards, stickers, etc;

Big thanks to:

  • Stormy, who’s responsible for the whole new presentation of the program;
  • Zana, who’s the program admin, handling the relationship with donors and all the daily tasks surrounding Friends of GNOME;
  • Andreas and Kalle, for the new website design;
  • Owen, for the help on setting up the new website in the GNOME servers;
  • GNOME marketing folks, who helped us with feedback and ideas;
  • Everyone else who made this happen!

If you have any issues, suggestions, ideas about the new website, email us (fundraising at

So, what are you waiting for!? Go and Adopt a Hacker today!

  1. And now they add stickers to your Associates Mouse Pad. Good way to make us 2008 donors want to donate again :)

  2. @Michael, he main goal of GNOME Foundation is to support the GNOME community in several ways. Have a look at the new Friends of GNOME website. You’ll find information about what we’ve done in 2008 and what we plan to do in 2009.

  3. @Thomas, what do you mean exactly? The list of people in the website are simply the ones who will send the postcards to donors.

  4. @Thomas, ok, cool. vuntz is the guy organizing the list of postcard senders. We’re planning to update it with different people every 3-6 months. Just email him about this. Cheers!
