Kanbanara Software Foundation

At the present time, Kanbanara Software Foundation is a trading name of Rebecca Shalfield having had our application to the Charity Commission on 15th December 2017 for the establishment of the Kanbanara Software Foundation as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with a Foundation model constitution under the Charities Act 2011 to look after Kanbanara's now open-sourced source code rejected. As it is our intention that the source code to Kanbanara is owned by a charity rather than by Rebecca Shalfield, the application will be reworked and resubmitted once a number of other trustees come forward.

The Kanbanara Software Foundation is the organisation behind Kanbanara. Become a member of the KSF and help advance the software and our mission.
