On 14 March, we celebrate Pi Day. In American notation, 14 March is 3/14, which is the same as the first three digits of the mathematical constant, pi. No emails about tau, please. To celebrate its namesake this year, the Raspberry Pi Foundation had a special fundraising campaign.

“When people think about Raspberry Pi, they usually think about the tiny, affordable, and powerful computers we all know and love,” says Anna Coe, Senior Development Manager at the Raspberry Pi Foundation North America. “What many don’t know is that the Raspberry Pi Foundation is a non-profit organisation with an educational mission. That mission is to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world.”

There was a special little bonus for people who donated – their name mentioned here in The MagPi.

“In the weeks leading up to Pi Day, over 400 generous individuals and companies contributed more than £18,000 to support young learners who rely on the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s free learning resources,” Anna reveals. “Through gifts of $3.14, £31.42, €314.16, and more, Pi Day campaign donors have made an impact on 60,000 young digital makers who are learning new skills and getting creative with computing.”

We’re honoured to display all your names. Thank you for funding the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Special thanks from Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi Foundation extends deep gratitude to the Pi Day campaign donors listed here, and to the additional 220 supporters who have chosen to remain anonymous. Special thanks goes to EPAM Systems. who matched the first $5000 raised dollar-for-dollar; to CanaKit for their generous gift of $3141; and to OKdo for donating 50% of their Pi Day weekend proceeds to this campaign.
