Dear supporters and friends of The Document Foundation,
on behalf of the worldwide LibreOffice community, and on behalf of the
donor Freies Office Deutschland e.V., we would like to express our
sincerest thanks to all of you for your kind and generous support in
setting up the legal entity.
On February 17th, The Document Foundation has been incorporated as a
German Stiftung des bürgerlichen Rechts, located in Berlin, and in the
meantime, the transfer of all assets has been nearly finished. In other
words: The long-awaited foundation is finally in existence and fully
For us, it is still unbelievable how strong the worldwide support is,
how many people support the idea of an independent foundation, and how
many contributed by either getting engaged in the project, or by
donating to fund our operations.
Following our open and transparent approach, we have made public our
budget, and will constantly update it, so you see what your donations
are being used for.
Our sincere thanks also go out to the members of our advisory board, who
provide us not only with guidance, but also with financial support.
Although many of us are volunteers, working pro bono in their spare
time, running such an entity needs funds. Travel support, participation
in events, providing infrastructure, and many other areas need to be
covered. Without all your support, The Document Foundation would not be
what it is today.
Your contribution made a real difference and enabled us to create a
strong community-driven, meritocratic, vendor-neutral foundation for the
best free office suite. We could not have done it without you.
Thank you very much for your support of The Document Foundation!
The Board of Directors
Florian Effenberger, Chairman of the Board
