  • Free Silicon Foundation
  • Free Software Community of India

  • Software Freedom Conservancy funding from Google, IBM
  • Software Freedom Law Center

  • This list includes groups that endorse the idea of federation, and those that may not. Inclusion does not denote endorsement. If you know of other groups that advocate free software, let us know.

    If you would like to join this federation, there is a Free_Software_Federation_HOWTO|HOWTO for getting started.
