All right Drupal community! This is our moment - together, we are going to move Drupal 8 from beta to release through the Drupal 8 Accelerate program. This is an all-out, everyone-in effort to raise $250,000 to kill the last criticals in our way.
To kick things off, the Association has contributed $62,500 and the Association Board has raised another $62,500 from Anchor Donors. That means that $125,000 has already been raised, so:
Every dollar you donate has been matched, doubling your impact.

The D8 Accelerate project is designed to help move Drupal 8 from the initial beta to a full release. This directly relates to the Association's mission: uniting a global open source community to build and promote Drupal. This is a pilot program from the Drupal Association to put $250,000 of community funds toward accelerating the release of Drupal 8, due to the strategic impact this work has on the entire Drupal ecosystem.
