We Value All Contributions - The Carpentries 2021 Fundraiser
There are 10 days left in our campaigns! As of today, we are 53% of the way to reaching our goal!

Funds we get from this campaign will help us:

  • Offer greater diversity in the languages we teach and interact in.

  • Recognize and appreciate the different cultural norms that exist around data, programming, teaching, and volunteering in different regions to improve our programs and services.

  • Collaborate with existing organisations to reach broader communities.

  • Authentically engage broader communities, working with, not for them.

The Carpentries is funded in part by grants and donations, and donating even a small amount can make a big difference - we value all contributions!
