NumFOCUS is grateful to announce that we received a grant award of $50,000 in October from the Heising-Simons Foundation. This generous grant funding will provide general support resources to NumFOCUS and will benefit all of our Sponsored and Affiliated Projects as well as our organization’s several programs and initiatives.

“This grant award from Heising-Simons will play an invaluable role in supporting our work this year,” said Leah Silen, NumFOCUS Executive Director. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with HSF and exploring ways to expand our capacity to serve our Projects and our open source community.”

The Heising-Simons Foundation is a family foundation based in Los Altos and San Francisco, California. The Foundation works with its many partners to advance sustainable solutions in climate and clean energy, enable groundbreaking research in science, enhance the education of our youngest learners, and support human rights for all people. HSF joins the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation as our third foundation partner.
