Digital Defiance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with access to numerous resources which can be directed to help notable and societally beneficial projects. We are beholden to our partners, donors, and the public to ensure that our resources are only used in the service of creating Open Source, Free Software that is not being used to generate a profit.

Examples of qualifying projects might include research oriented, template/starter projects, libraries, or applications.

Please fill out the form below with your contact details and tell us about your project, how it is beneficial to the public, and how we can help your project.

We anticipate that we can help projects by:

  • Finding volunteers to work on the code
  • Providing project management or process management (Agile)
  • Providing software, hardware, and other third party services (via TechSoup and other negotiations)
  • Promoting projects on our blog and social media, including LinkedIn
