We Value All Contributions - The Carpentries 2021 Fundraiser
On November 2, The Carpentries launched an end of the year donation campaign to raise $5000. The campaign will run through December 31, and 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!
