Here at Jano Foundation, we believe that computer softwares should be accessible to everyone, not just those who can afford to pay. So we develop free and open-source softwares that we hope can serve as no-compromise alternatives to currently available commercial softwares, providing the same or better functionalities, yet available at no cost. Moreover, these softwares should be available and accessible to use and involvement from everyone, regardless of their age, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
The Foundation is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in Arizona, with goals of promoting the use and modification of open source software, and providing new open source softwares to the public.
The Foundation has applied for recognition of 501(c)(3) exempt private foundation status.
