Thank-you gifts

We have great schwag again for this campaign, with thank-you gifts for donations as low as $32. The thank-you gifts for each donation level include all the thank-you gifts from lower levels.


Back in July, 103 people and groups donated $512 or more, raising $80,000 in three weeks for the Seed 100 campaign. This time, we aim to raise $100,000 in two months, by January 31st, 2012. Help us reach our goal! If you couldn’t donate then, now’s your chance.

Why donate to us?

To learn more about the Ada Initiative, see our pages on what we do and who we are. We also just posted a series on how we are organized (part 1, part 2), how we spent the money we raised so far, and how we plan to use money from this donation drive.

More questions? See our FAQ.

Help spread the word

You can help women in open technology and culture by spreading the word about this fundraising drive!

Emailing a friend directly is the most effective thing you can do to spread the word. People are far more likely to donate as the result of a personal email than any other online method.
