We all need to contribute to the global commons. The fundraising task has been a shared one since the very beginning. Australia, UK, Canada, France, Catalunya, etc. all local OFN affiliates have searched for funds locally, talked to local private foundations, participated to EU projects, etc. Some (like Australia or Catalunya) also have carried out crowdfunding campaigns. Usually local fundraising serve both the local costs to deploy the project and part of the money is attributed to the "global pot" to finance software improvement. Until we have an efficient sustainable local business model, we need to keep on finding funds through philanthropy and local governments.
