Everyone around the world can freely access, use, modify, and share everything we support.
Project categories will include software, music, movies, journalism, research, and more. Too often, these things get artificially limited technically and/or legally as part of securing funding. Our goal is to fund them so that these limitations are no longer needed.
We will verify that all projects at Snowdrift.coop are released as public goods under free/libre/open terms.
Each patron donates a tiny amount times the number of patrons who join them in supporting a project. This creates a network effect where project supporters work together to fund the results they care about.
Ongoing monthly funding gives project teams a sustainable living while providing accountability.
As a non-profit cooperative, we serve the interests of our community, and everyone can participate in decision-making.
