The numbers are in and we are happy to announce that the NumFOCUS End-of-Year Fundraising Drive has raised $9,278.50, exceeding our original goal of $5,000! On behalf of NumFOCUS and all of the projects, we would like to extend our sincerest THANK YOU to everyone who donated this year.
These funds will go directly towards our mission to promote sustainable high-level programming languages, open code development, and reproducible scientific research. We will continue our efforts to support open source projects, grow programs such as Diversity in Scientific Computing, and increase sustainability and collaboration within the data science community.
Thank you again for making 2016 one of the best years yet. We look forward to another amazing year at NumFOCUS!
