The 2015 Raspberry Pi Foundation Annual Review is out now! Download your free copy here.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation was established in 2008 as a UK-based charity with the purpose “to further the advancement of education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science, and related subjects”.

As a charity, we thoroughly review our activities every year, and publish the results so people can find out what we have achieved.

ANNUAL REVIEW 2015

2015 was a big year for the Raspberry Pi Foundation. We expanded our educational programmes, released two new computers, and started our own publishing department. We also:

  • Were joined by new Foundation CEO Philip Colligan
  • Developed a new strategy to clarify our mission
  • Merged with Code Club to help get even more young children interested in computing
  • Put two Raspberry Pi computers in space, running code written by schoolchildren
  • Published ‘The MagPi’ magazine in print for the first time, and gave away a fully functional computer on the cover
  • Explored how computing can be a creative discipline in educational programmes for parents and young people
  • Trained hundreds of teachers across the UK to become creative and well informed in computing and digital making with their students
  • Supported many amazing projects and events created by people from our community, bringing people together through digital making
