The FreeBSD Foundation has been pretty quiet for most of its life, just doing what needs to get done. Now they are asking for your help in keeping their charitable status. From what I gather, they need more donations from a broader group of people. You can donate via check, money order, credit card or PayPal. My check is going in the mail today.
UPDATE 27 Dec 2004 @ 11:25pm: In less than a week The FreeBSD Foundation has met and exceeded their donation needs to keep their public charity status.
