→Administrative transactions with the Software Freedom Conservancy
Sugar Labs is a member project of the [http://sfconservancy.org Software Freedom Conservancy], "an organization composed of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) projects. As a fiscal sponsor for FOSS projects, the Conservancy provides member projects with free financial and administrative services, but does not involve itself with technological and artistic decisions." While we benefit from the numerous services provided by the conservancy, we are also under an obligation to abide by its mission--promoting FOSS projects--and work within its administrative structure. Below is a set of administrative procedures for routine transactions with the Conservancy. If you have any transactions that fall outside of those listed below, please contact slobs AT sugarlabs DOT org.

.sfconservancy DOT org is the place to write if you’re asking Conservancy to send money to someone. This includes reimbursements for travel and other project expenses, contractor payments, payments for conference services, and so on.
accounts-receivable AT tix
.sfconservancy DOT org is the place to write if Conservancy should expect to receive money from someone, or for customer service after they’ve sent the Conservancy money. Write here if you want the Conservancy to send an invoice to someone (including invoices after payment), to let the Conservancy know about conference sponsorships, or to give the Conservancy a heads-up about what an incoming check is for.
accounts-taxinfo AT tix
