It is this time of the year again. Non-profits all over the world are going to run their funding campaigns in the pre-xmas season, and so we thought to learn to run our own, if we want to continue to grow and to further professionalize (and everybody wants us to, right?).

Let's face it: we have proven that we are capable of doing many things, but campaigning has not been our most outstanding strength so far. Recognizing our weakness is the first step to overcome it. Let's think about how we can improve on this side too.

We need to think about communication, design banners, decide whether we want this to be tied to a dedicated purpose (a stretch goal like CI/CD infrastructure maybe, or a topic like a legal defense fund), or simply in general support Codeberg.org's goals and strengthen our standing.

For reference, attached the banner Wikipedia is running this year in EU. Let's collect in this issue thread more examples, and ideas how we would like to plan, structure and organize a coming campaign.

FYI. I am slowly collecting resources for delightful-funding and delightful-sustainable-business. Maybe it has something useful, but you can also use it as 'dump' for good resources you find on this quest (i.e. PR's most welcome).

This again on a tangent.. sorry (because this is not yet actionable). I am preparing kick-off of an exciting federated FOSS project.

It addresses exactly that. The project is called Outreach and has a readme-driven development repo on codeberg.

(Please do not spread this info further as yet, other than among codeberg users, as I am preparing a public announcement that's most likely to attract contributors).

For all those interested.. there's contact info on the README.

Edit: Also I am specifically looking for feedback, i.e. might this be useful to Codeberg in future?
