Less than two weeks later, $14,000 has been committed by 6 donors (some anonymous, some publicly)! It’s been amazing watching it play out over Twitter as the matching contributions come in steadily.
Each donation will be publicly displayed and will contribute towards a future round of CLR matching, a mechanism we describe in further detail here.
You can make a contribution today!

Anyone who pledges $1,000 or more will get this limited edition Gitcoin Torch Kudos! Check it out here.
The Gitcoin team is grateful for a community that gathers together towards the support of our open source commons. We’re continuing to work towards solutions which systematically make it easier to fund open source (and thus, create a stronger, more functional internet).
Until then, grassroots efforts like this show the power of a strong, interested, incentivized community. Let’s grow open source, together.
