Why support us?
The Open Knowledge Foundation builds tools and communities to develop, share, and use open knowledge — content and data that everyone can use, share and build on. Our events bring together a diverse community including open-source coders, civil servants and citizen journalists from all over the world to push the cause of openness and learn from one another and develop further the open knowledge commons.
Over the past 18 months specific examples of our work including working with hacks and hackers, citizens and civil servants, students and scientists to open up knowledge which should be available for everyone. (You can see more examples of our recent work in the sidebar above).
We want to enable as many people as possible to open up knowledge and use it to improve the world. We believe that the best way to have a lasting impact is to build stronger communities of people who will continue to push for change.
But doing this requires time and money. To establish a local group, train data wranglers and employ community coordinators to rally coders, politicians, journalists and civil servants and work closely with key institutions to help them open up their data needs significant effort and resources.
Your support is therefore crucial to us in continuing and expanding our work.
