Subject: Give the gift of FSF membership and double your impact with a $10K match!

This holiday season, we encourage you to give your friends and loved ones gifts that will respect their freedom!

Give a current or potential free software supporter a Free Software Foundation (FSF) Associate Membership today, and your support of the FSF will be doubled!

Thanks to the generosity of the Frâncu family, the impact of all new memberships between now and December 9th will be matched, up to $10,000. Giving a membership now will count double, and you'll also help us reach our goal of 700 new members, powering up our work for 2018!

By donating an FSF membership, you'll be helping a nonprofit that's earned Charity Navigator's highest rating in fiscal responsibility and transparency, and you'll also be helping to defend and promote computer user rights -- human rights. You will get the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing your gift will be working to build a stronger community, and your gift recipient will be able to enjoy a number of cool benefits: an ultra-slim USB membership card, the opportunity to take advantage of the FSF member email-forwarding service, free attendance at the annual LibrePlanet conference, a 20 percent discount on FSF merchandise, a 5 percent discount on ThinkPenguin hardware, a print copy of the FSF's biannual Bulletin, discounts on training classes and eligibility for LibreOffice certification, an fsf/member IRC cloak on Freenode, an FSF button for their Web site, use of an XMPP (Jabber) service, and Digital Credit Union eligibility.

Giving a membership as a gift is easy: make a donation of $60 for a student membership or $120 for an Associate Membership, or any larger amount you wish, then email us at with the gift membership recipient's:

    email address, and
    mailing address (provide this if you would like us to mail the membership welcome packet directly to them, including the membership gift).

From now until December 31st, 2017, for Associate Memberships of $120 or more, you can also select our newest Four Freedoms t-shirt for the recipient of the membership (be sure to let us know their size)!

We will then let them know that the gift is coming from you, inform them of the benefits that come with being a member, and create their membership account.

If you wish to give the recipient the welcome packet yourself, and save the surprise for later, please just let us know.

The FSF receives very little funding from corporations, so donations from individuals like you truly power our work. Your gift will help us start 2018 off with a bang! As of this writing, we need 618 more members to reach 700. Hope you can help us get there!

Happy hacking,
Jeanne Rasata
Membership Coordinator
