NumFOCUS Accomplishments in 2017

2017 has been an incredible year for NumFOCUS! Here’s a quick list of highlights to date:

We can’t wait to expand upon our success this year for an even more exciting 2018! But to do that, we need your help…


NumFOCUS is excited to participate in “Giving Tuesday” (Nov. 28th) this year, just after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. Inspired by Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday calls on the public to invest in charity instead of consumerism.

We’re throwing a “friendraiser” in an effort to grow our overall membership, and we need your help!

What’s a Friendraiser?

We’re asking our community of supporters to reach out to your friends and colleagues and invite them to become a member of NumFOCUS. (Curious if you’re already a NumFOCUS Member? Check for your name at the bottom of the page here.)

Rather than focusing on a specific fundraising goal, our #GivingTuesday friendraiser is focused on signing up as many new Community, Supporting, and Sustaining Members as possible.
