So, it is no secret that we are big fans of Mozilla around here. Firefox is a great browser, and I don’t know how I would survive without Thunderbird. Not only do they make great projects, theirs is a great and noble mission:

The Mozilla project is a global community of people who believe that openness, innovation, and opportunity are key to the continued health of the Internet. We have worked together since 1998 to ensure that the Internet is developed in a way that benefits everyone. We are best known for creating the Mozilla Firefox web browser.

The Mozilla project uses a community-based approach to create world-class open source software and to develop new types of collaborative activities. We create communities of people involved in making the Internet experience better for all of us.1

We just came across a pretty interesting infographic on Mozilla’s 2013 year in fundraising. According to a post on Geoffrey MacDougall’s [Head of Development for Mozilla] blog:

2013 was Mozilla’s most successful fundraising year ever. We grew our core operating grants and more than doubled the size of our donations campaign.2

Here is a good look at the non-profit’s successful 2013:
