Where the money goes

Sourcefabric relies on the support of private donors and institutions to carry out our mission. Sourcefabric books are audited annually.

Much of our budget goes toward paying professional developers. While many open source projects are coded by volunteers who will use and maintain the code themselves, our software serves the specific needs of journalists, few of whom write code. 

Donor support also pays for software testing and implementation, client training and hardware. We also need funding to explore and experiment with new ideas, as well as for basic operations.
