Sovereign Tech Fund

The Germany Government Sovereign Tech Fund is supporting the OpenJS Foundation to implement improvements to the JavaScript ecosystem infrastructure and security.

By supporting a long-term resilient and sustainable open source ecosystem, the development and maintenance of relevant software components can be improved, thus strengthening competitiveness and innovation as well as efficient governance and an empowered civil society.

About the fund


Our goal is to help our open source projects gain more secure and modern technologies and policies for the web. In collaboration with community leaders in our OpenJS Security Collaboration Space, and the Linux Foundation IT team, we developed a plan that we hope will scale across the JavaScript ecosystem.


We will do the following over the next two years:

  • Deliver infrastructure updates across our project portfolio through a single-scalable solution, while implementing a responsible sunset program for inactive projects.
  • Develop and deliver security and maintenance policies and practices for critical projects.


We will be keeping the community updated through a cadence of blog posts on Stay tuned!
