The Mozilla Foundation, the folks behind Firefox and Thunderbird, have announced the Mozilla Corporation, a for-profit corporate subsidiary wholley owned by the 501-c-3 nonprofit Mozilla Foundation. This precisely mirrors the structure we have choosen to support CiviCRM and OpenNGO. The Social Source Foundation, a 501-c-3 nonprofit, shepards the open source software along, creates code, builds community and generally tries to create a healthy ecosystem. We also have a wholly-owned for profit subsidiary that will offer an ASP version of our software at a small monthly fee (approximately $50 per month). Great minds clearly think alike!
