Next Frontier in Philanthropy: Open Source

Submitted by: John Jones | Case Foundation

Leaders from both the nonprofit and technology sectors explain why recognizing open source contributions made by individuals and organizations as a new form of philanthropy is crucial to the future of both sectors. This includes well-established projects, but it also increasingly includes purpose-built technologies.
