In October 2014, we ran a highly successful Kickstarter campaign to put the things in place for a viable future for Chocolatey for the next 20+ years!
As a community, you told us you wanted Chocolatey to stick around for the foreseeable future as much as we did and were willing to step up and make a difference. If you benefit from Chocolatey today, it is due in part to the amazing folks and organizations that stepped up and said "Yes!" Be sure to thank a backer if you happen to meet them!
Backers at this level supported Chocolatey with at least a $750 donation. These organizations are amazing and support automation on Windows and Chocolatey at the highest level! When you are looking for the best organizations to support, keep these organizations in mind.
The following were the original stated goals of the Kickstarter:
With over 1,000 backers in October/November 2014, these were a percentage of the early adopters of Chocolatey! If we were to run a Kickstarter campaign now, based on the popularity of the site today, we believe we would have had over 10,000 backers!
