DuckDuckGo, the privacy search engine, has contributed to OSTIF for a third time by donating $25,000 USD. The charitable giving as part of DuckDuckGo’s annual program Spread Privacy is special, as the funds are not allocated to any specific project. This contribution helps OSTIF tremendously and allows the organization to be more sustainable. Resources will be allocated to overhead costs and help OSTIF make more security improvements to critical open source projects than ever before in 2023 (like the recent research on curl and git.) 

We are grateful and honored for the community and to be supported alongside organizations like Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) raising the standard of trust on the internet.

And a special thank you to Katie and everyone from DuckDuckGo for helping to make this happen!
