The Python Software Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the Python programming language.
Your donation helps sustain a vibrant and diverse Python community and shows your support for Open Source. We rely on memberships, individual donations, and corporate sponsorships to award grants for regional Python conferences, sprints, local Meetups, and other community events, as well as to support Python documentation, fiscal sponsorships, and community projects such as:
This year (and next year) the Python Foundation REALLY needs all of our support, with the biggest event (PyCon) being virtual in 2020, and likely virtual again in 2021, donations will be what keeps all the things we all use and enjoy with Python going.
Today is #GivingTuesday on Adafruit . In the makers/electronics/engineering community we all have something we can give, our time, our talents, our code, our designs, and today we’re celebrating companies and organizations that help make this happen. We’re also celebrating organizations and people that could use your help to keep their efforts going.
We’ll be posting all day with some #GivingTuesday ideas to consider, post yours and we’ll help get the word out.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. GivingTuesday was born and incubated at the 92nd Street Y and its Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City. GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
