Board of Directors
Hacker Initiative is an IRS 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt PUBLIC nonprofit charity. Our mission is to support and grow the collective knowledge and contributions of the worldwide hacker community. We support hackers of all types, wherever you are in the world, regardless of experience, whether that’s the passionate beginner or the lifelong hacker wishing to make a broader contribution to the hacker community and the world.
About This Public Nonprofit
This public nonprofit is formed to give back to and strengthen the hacking community. The founder, Bill Pollock, through his donation of $1.3 million to date, and No Starch Press Inc. have been closely involved with the global hacking community since 1999.
We are growing through the generous support of our global communities, individuals, and corporate donors. Ongoing funding is used to continue to strengthen and expand our global hacking communities. We endeavor to educate the public about “hacking,” and work to create safe and central places for the elite engineering community.
The Hacker Initiative will support these activities through donations from the general public, generous individuals, corporate grants, and funding from other public charities. The Hacker Initiative has already generated substantial interest from a number of prominent individuals in the hacking community who wish to donate, volunteer on the Board, and help support its mission.
