An opportunity to give back to open-source software developers arose recently.
From June 8th to 23rd 2022, Gitcoin Grants Round 14 was open to funders who are willing to provide financial support to open source projects. $4.9M was distributed to public goods as part of the round, of which $3.2M came from the combined matching pools and $1.7M was contributed by the Gitcoin community.
There was record-breaking community participation with over 44,000 contributors making just shy of 600,000 contributions to over 1,250 grants.
