Excited to share that as of this week we’ve officially stood up the FreeSK8 Foundation, a non-profit scientific research organization, 501©(3) in the State of Oregon.
This is a major milestone for us as it ensures that our code, designs, & documentation in the various open source projects within FreeSK8 are fostered by a neutral & transparent organization so that the technology remains free & open to the public. This will enable us to setup consistent funding to ensure that these projects continue forward & benefit all.
Our officially filed mission statement with the State is as follows:
The FreeSK8 Foundation’s mission is to develop and distribute open source software, hardware, and documentation materials to progress personal electric mobility technologies for all.
It takes a bit of time to finalize federal-level 501©(3) but things are underway and we’re able to start structuring & getting things rolling now.
We’re super grateful that we’ve had the opportunity & support to get this project to this point. We could not have done it without our super supportive community & beta testers.
