Gallery joins SPI as associated project

Last modified 2006-11-07 17:46 by Neil McGovern

Gallery and Software in the Public Interest (SPI) are pleased to announce an agreement to place Gallery under the SPI umbrella as a member project

Gallery joins such estemed projects as the Debian, PostgreSQL and Drupal projects and the Open Voting Foundation.

Bharat Mediratta, Gallery Project founder said:
"The SPI umbrella provides much needed financial and legal services for Gallery and frees us to do what we do best -- build a best-of-breed open source software product."

SPI was incorporated as a non-profit organization on June 16, 1997 in the state of New York. Since then, it has become an umbrella organization for projects from the community.

In 1999, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of the United States government determined that under section 501 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code SPI qualifies for 501 (c) (3) (non-profit organization) status under section 509 (a) (1) and 170 (b) (1) (A) (vi). This means that all donations made to SPI and its supported projects are tax deductible for donors in the United States.
