As we announced previously, ROR launched a fundraising campaign in October to ensure the registry’s long-term sustainability. We are grateful for the community supporters who have already contributed to this campaign. The first round of supporters was announced a couple of weeks ago. We are excited in this post to acknowledge the following additional contributors:
These new contributions supplement those previously received from:
- Center for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS), Leiden University
- Curtin University
- German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB)
The ROR campaign has now raised $36,000 toward our 2019 target of $75,000. As we approach the end of the year, we are calling on our community to help us reach our goal. Contributions in any amount are welcome, and will go directly to support the registry’s growth and development. To start your contribution, email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a pledge and request an invoice.
If you have already made a contribution, or if you are not able to support the campaign financially, please consider spreading the word to your networks and sharing your views about how and why open and community-led infrastructure for organization identifiers matters to you. You can reference the blog post announcing the campaign, and mention @ResearchOrgs on Twitter (here is the campaign kick-off Tweet).
In this season of giving thanks, the ROR team is especially grateful for your support and engagement. #LetsRORtogether!
