Supporting open source and nonprofits around the world.

Good things should thrive online. Our Open Source and Nonprofit Program is one way we work toward that vision: we provide free services for nonprofit organizations and projects (as well as using open source ourselves) — and we’re always looking to support more initiatives.

We’re here to build a more trustworthy internet. If you (or an organization you love) could benefit from free nonprofit support or open-source services, we want to hear from you.
