Bringing open source ecosystems together to solve challenges.

Open source powers more than 80% of the technology we all use every day, yet many open source developers and projects face barriers, from generating funding to improving security to growing diverse, sustainable communities.

CommunityBridge brings together maintainers, contributors, aspiring developers, and enterprises to help solve these critical challenges and drive innovation.

Ensuring project communities have the resources needed to secure, maintain, and advance open source is essential to all of us — and is central to the Linux Foundation’s mission. The Linux Foundation is home to more than 150 of the world’s most important open source projects and over 1,000 member organizations.

CommunityBridge was born from our experience creating large ecosystems around critical shared technology — and from a desire to sustain other important yet under-resourced projects.
