“Mozilla Offers Up a Million Dollars in Awards to Open-Source Projects…”

The Mozilla Foundation has had a grant program in place for many years intended to fund open-source projects, but, on Friday, CEO Mitchell Baker announced “a new level of support” in the form of $1,000,000 in awards to be distributed among 10 to-be-determined open-source projects by Dec. 12.”The Mozilla Open Source Support program is designed to recognize and celebrate communities who are leading the way with open source projects that contribute to our work and the health of the Web,” Baker writes in a brief announcement. “It encompasses both: a) a ‘give back’ element for open source and free software projects that Mozilla relies on; and b) a ‘give forward’ component for supporting other projects where financial resources from Mozilla can make our entire community more successful. We’ll give more specific names to these components as we go forward. The Mozilla Open Source Support program will also encompass a component supporting increased attention to the security of open source and free software programs.”
