Raspberry Pi Foundation

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based charity. Since launching our first product in 2012, we have sold over seven million low-cost, high-performance Raspberry Pi computers through our trading subsidiary, Raspberry Pi Trading Ltd, and helped to establish a global community of digital makers and educators. All profits are directed to the Foundation’s mission to put the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We provide outreach and educational programmes to make computing and digital making relevant and accessible to more people. We work with partners to develop programmes that get people of all ages engaged in digital making, often using contexts like music, space, nature, and the arts to involve people who might not think that computing is relevant to them. We support networks of volunteer-led events that provide opportunities for people to get involved in digital making. In November 2015 we joined forces with Code Club, who help volunteers run free clubs to teach children to code in schools all over the world. We develop free learning resources to help people, from beginners to advanced users, to learn about computing and how to make things with computers. We train teachers, educators and others who can guide other people to learn about computing and digital making. We help create and sustain communities that share learning and support.
