Thank you

At the Open Knowledge Foundation, our mission is to create a more open world – a world where all non-personal information is open, free for everyone to use, build on and share; and creators and innovators are fairly recognised and rewarded.

We want to enable as many people as possible to have access to the information they need and the tools and skills to use it to improve the world.

Your support will help us to achieve this mission by allowing us to pursue impactful projects, launch vital campaigns and create open source tools and services which help open up knowledge to the benefit of all.

Thank you for supporting the fight for a fair, free and open future.
