The GNOME Foundation is a non-profit 501(3)c. While we are required by law to make our financial data available to anyone who asks, we want to take it one step further and make our financial data available to everyone on the web. We believe our financial data reflects our support of the GNOME project in its goal of creating a free and open source computing solution for everyone.
For comments or questions on the data, please contact the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors.
For 2007, we had our finances reviewed by an accountant to make sure that we are doing the right thing. You can see the letter from the accountant along with a summary of our financial position. We plan to make this an annual process.
Copies of GNOME Foundation's Federal Tax Return (the 990 form) can be downloaded at Guidestar.org. You will have to register with GuideStar to access the IRS form, but the registration is free and takes only a minute.
The Reports of the GNOME Foundation include reports on foundation activities for the past quarter or year, including community programmes and events, and foundation development initiatives.
The Reports are published each quarter, and a specific annual report is also published at the end of each year.
