We’ve been making big websites for 14 years, and almost all of them have been built on Drupal. It’s no exaggeration to say that Four Kitchens owes its success to the incredible opportunities Drupal has provided us. There has never been anything like Drupal and the community it has fostered—and there may never be anything like it ever again.
That’s why it’s crucial we do everything we can to support the Drupal Association. Especially now.
The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt everywhere, especially at the Association. With the cancellation of DrupalCon Minneapolis, the Drupal Association lost a major source of annual fundraising. Without the revenue from DrupalCon, the Association would not be able to continue its mission to support the Drupal project, the community, and its growth.
The Drupal community’s response to this crisis was tremendous. For our part, we proudly joined 27 other organizations in pledging our sponsorship fees to the Association regardless of whether, or how, DrupalCon happened. I ensured my Individual Membership was still active, and I made a personal contribution.
But we need to do more.
You can help by joining us in the #DrupalCares campaign.
The #DrupalCares campaign is a fundraiser to protect the Drupal Association from the financial impact of COVID-19. While the Drupal project is used on the front lines of the Drupal fight, the Drupal Association itself is at risk because we are unable to hold our primary fundraising event, DrupalCon, in May as planned. Your support will help keep the Drupal Association strong and able to continue accelerating the Drupal project.
The outpouring of support has been… Inspiring. First, project founder Dries Buytaert and his partner Vanessa Buytaert pledged their generous support of $100,000. Then, a coalition of Drupal businesses pledged even more matching contributions. We are proud to count ourselves among the dozens of participating Drupal businesses.
Any individual donations, increased memberships, or new memberships through the end of April will be tripled by these matching pledges, up to $100,000, for a total of $300,000.
Please join us in supporting the Drupal Association. Your contribution will help ensure the continued success of the Association and the Drupal community for years to come.
Give to #DrupalCares through April to help the Association receive a 3:1 matching contribution.
