Software Freedom Institute (SFI) is the non-profit organization who is the main organizer of Software Freedom Day. SFI handles all sponsorship contracts, official team registrations, annual Best SFD Event Competition etc. At present, hundreds of teams around the world celebrate the day locally and help to send out a global message.



Matt Oquist, a programmer on January of 2004 declared a day as free software distribution day. At that time, TheOpenCD project (project leader Henrik Omma and project contributor Phil Harpe), which maintains a CD of high-quality Free Software for Windows was going on. They took his idea.

After considering several proposals of dates, names, and logistics, Henrik, Phil, and Matt agreed on “Software Freedom Day” because they believed that ultimately, everyone without a vested interest in proprietary software can unite to educate the worldwide public about the ideals of Software Freedom and the practical benefits of Free Software. August 28th, 2004, was the first annual Software Freedom Day.
