The MetaBrainz Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit based in San Luis Obispo, California, that operates the MusicBrainz project and several other related projects.

With the creation of the MetaBrainz Foundation on 19 April 2005, the MusicBrainz project entered its second phase of life. In the first incarnation, the project had been privately maintained and had focused primarily on collecting basic music metadata. The MusicBrainz project has grown considerably since then, and using the legal backing and infrastructure of the MetaBrainz Foundation, it continues to thrive and expand its scope.
