Grantmaking

iFOSSF is both a grantee and grantor in that iFOSSF receives gifts from grantmakers and corporate donation in order to expand our work in the public's behalf. In many situations, we identify domain expertise required to fulfill our project missions by providing funds to individuals and other non-profit organizations on a project by project basis.

Grantmaking partnership usually associated with one of our strategic programs or projects for a targeted purpose and/or community. All donors will receive acknowledgement in return for the charitable contribution, which can bolster the company's brand image. Furthermore, given the up take of FOSS in the ICT industry, your contribution will not only help you to accomplish public purposes but also fulfill business purposes in many cases.
