NOTE: Please scroll down and fill out the form below to join this mailing list.

Greetings! This mailing list is for Real Life non-profit organizations interested in or currently using Second Life, as well as any Residents interested in sponsoring or hosting non-profit events in Second Life. We will be using this list to send out information we feel is of interest to non-profits, and this is also a chance for all of you to communicate with each other directly.

Please send email to this list if you'd like to share your experiences using Second Life for non-profit work and connect with other potential colleagues and collaborators. This is an opportunity for you all to network with each other and share strategies for self-sustainable models and successful Second Life non-profit events.

Since you're just joining the group, please send a brief email to the list introducing yourself, describing your interests and what you're working on in Second Life. We'd all love to hear about it!

For more information and to share your own resources with other people, please visit the Second Life: Non-Profits wiki page.

We also have some other mailing lists that you might be interested in joining. Please see the Educators Working with Teens Mailing List, the Healthcare Support and Education Mailing List, the Corporate Use Mailing List, and the main Educators Mailing List.

Finally, if you have any additional questions about this non-profits mailing list or general questions about Linden Lab's support for non-profits, please feel free to contact me directly at

All the best,
-Claudia Linden
