+<h2 style="font-weight: normal;">… and receives US$300,000 Donation from Handshake</h2>
+We are excited to announce that our project is joining the [Software Freedom
+Conservancy](https://sfconservancy.org/about/) as a member project.
+Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in New York that
+helps promote, develop and defend Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS)
+Conservancy provides [important services](https://sfconservancy.org/projects/services/)
+for its member projects. Member projects like us now can take directed donations
+which allows donors to earmark their donations for the benefit of a specific
+FLOSS project. Conservancy provides fiscal oversight to ensure that these funds
+are spent in a manner that advances the project and fits with Conservancy's
+501(c)(3) mission to promote, advance, and defend software freedom. Last, but not
+least, it can also provide projects with basic legal services.
+The Reproducible Builds project, which began as a project within the Debian
+community, joins other adjacent work by Conservancy around this distribution
+such as the [Debian Copyright Aggregation Project](https://sfconservancy.org/news/2015/aug/17/debian/).
+Reproducible Builds is also critical to [Conservancy's own compliance work](https://sfconservancy.org/copyleftcompliance/):
+a build that cannot be verified may contain code that triggers different
+[license compliance responsibilities](https://reproducible-builds.org/events/berlin2016/gpl-compliance/)
+than those which the recipient is expecting. Unaccounted-for code makes it hard
+for anyone who distributes software to guarantee that they are doing so
+responsibly and with care for those who further receive the software.
+The Reproducible Builds project is already working with [many
+crucial and well-known free software projects](https://reproducible-builds.org/who/)
+such as [Coreboot](https://www.coreboot.org/) (also a Conservancy project!),
+OpenSUSE OpenWrt, Tails, GNU Guix, bootstrapable.org, FreeBSD, Arch Linux and
+[Tor](https://www.torproject.org). In the past, the Core Infrastructure
+Initiative [generously funded](https://www.coreinfrastructure.org/announcements/the-linux-foundations-core-infrastructure-initiative-renews-funding-for-reproducible-builds-project/)
+work on the project but this has since ceased. The work has continued in the
+meantime thanks to the contributions of volunteers.
+As Reproducible Builds joins Conservancy, it is also receiving a donation of
+US$300,000 from the [Handshake Foundation](https://handshake.org/) which will
+propel the project's efforts to ensure the future health and usability of free
+Karen Sandler, Executive Director of the Software Freedom Conservancy, says
+"The work being done at Reproducible Builds is critical for both the trust and
+long-term sustainability of free software projects. We're proud to be able to
+support the project behind this set of practices which we hope will eventually
+be adopted by the wider free software community."
+Holger Levsen, who will chair the project's Steering Committee, along with
+Bdale Garbee, Allen Gunn, Mattia Rizzolo, Keith Packard and Stefano Zacchiroli
+says, "I'm very happy that Reproducible Builds has become a Conservancy project
+and am much looking forward to see the results of this cooperation and the long
+term effects on the free software ecosystem. Reproducible Builds is on a long-
+term mission to change the way Free Software is distributed and used and I'm
+glad we have a strong partner who shares our vision and has ties into the wider
+Chris Lamb, the current [Debian](https://debian.org/) Project Leader and long-time contributor to the
+Reproducible Builds effort, references freedom #2 of the Free Software
+Foundation's [Four Freedoms](https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.en.html)
+when talking about the importance of trust when sharing software: "Are you
+really helping your neighbour if you distribute trojanned or otherwise
+compromised software?"
+Conservancy, a public charity focused on ethical technology, is home to over
+fifty member projects dedicated to developing and promoting free and open
+source software. Conservancy acts as a corporate umbrella, allowing member
+projects to operate as non-profit initiatives without having to manage their
+own corporate structure and administrative services.
