the first annual Creative Commons fundraising drive has started and CC needs your support. since inception the organisation has offered authors and creators simple tools to mark their content with the freedom they believe it should carry. these tools have helped build a movement. there are now over fifty-million objects on the web that link back to our licenses. there are hundreds of volunteers working to spread our free licenses across the globe (like us here in the cc-au office).
funding had traditionally come from the substantial support of major foundations. but now we need to show the world that our support reaches beyond foundation boardrooms.
we want to sustain our growth by building a core membership in CC. we need these members to help us to continue to offer free tools to enable a flexible range of protections and freedoms for artists, educators, scientists and writers. your contribution will make an important difference now (More about donations and deductions).
