The Fediverse Foundation is a non-commercial club ("Verein") based in Vienna, Austria, but operating worldwide, with the goal to promote and partially fund the Fediverse.
It hosts a few Fediverse instances on a server in Vienna that runs on 100% green energy, collects donations and tries to get funding.
The Fediverse Foundation will also create promotional material for the Fediverse and appear at fares and other events.

Currently the hosting of the instances costs 410€ a month, which Paula is paying out of her pocket, while she gets a few donations every now and then. Soon the Foundation will officially start collecting donations which will hopefully cover the costs.
