We financially support the following initiatives for a wide range of reasons.
Some do good in the WordPress community. Some are free and open source tools. Others have missions that we hold close to our hearts.
From the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s website:
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world. Founded in 1990, EFF champions user privacy, free expression, and innovation through impact litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism, and technology development. We work to ensure that rights and freedoms are enhanced and protected as our use of technology grows.
From Black Girls Code website: [Our mission] to introduce programming and technology to a new generation of coders, coders who will become builders of technological innovation and of their own futures.
From The Linux Foundation website: The Linux Foundation provides critical services to promote sustainable open source. Donations to The Linux Foundation directly fund services that benefit Linux and other open source communities. […] 100% of donations received go towards funding diversity programs.
Human rights abuses and environment scandals often find their roots in corrupted practices. Global Witness produces fearless reports across the globe that exposes individuals and businesses who often evade the spotlight. Truly independant, perfectly laudable organisation.

The free Members Plugin allows MailPoet’s users to manage and edit capabilities (permissions) for specific roles, like Editor or Author.
PHPStan helps us find PHP bugs before they reach our users. Couldn’t live without it.
PHP File Manager
PHP File Manager “is a complete filesystem management tool on a single file.” We find it to be very useful.
