The OpenBSD Foundation is a Canadian federal non-profit organization founded by the OpenBSD project "as a single point of contact for persons and organizations requiring a legal entity to deal with when they wish to support OpenBSD."[1] It also serves as a legal safeguard over other projects which are affiliated with OpenBSD, including OpenSSH, OpenBGPD, OpenNTPD, OpenCVS, OpenSMTPD and LibreSSL.

It was announced to the public by OpenBSD developer Bob Beck on July 25, 2007.
