About Unicode and the Adopt-a-Character Program

The Unicode Consortium is the premier non-profit, open source, open standards body for the Internationalization of software and services โ€” across 20 billion devices and counting! At its core, Unicode enables people around the world to communicate in any language.

The Adopt-a-Character program was launched in 2015 to support Unicode's mission, including encoding and preserving historical scripts such as Egyptian hieroglyphics and providing better language support for digitally disadvantaged and under-resourced languages such as Hanifi Rohingya used in Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Unicode, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Your contribution may be eligible for a tax deduction. Please consult with a tax expert for details.
