As Bryce suggested, Fox-1C has an active crowdsourcing campaign.

There are several linear LEOs in the pipeline (two in orbit awaiting
activation for amateur use, several others in various stages).

In orbit, awaiting activation for amateur use:
EO-79 (QB50p1)

Essentially complete, awaiting launch opportunity:

Also in the pipeline:

I know there are other projects in various planning stages too.

The Fox-2 program, which will commence once the Fox-1 series satellites are
completed, will also have linear transponder capability through it's
software defined transponder. I'm sure crowdsourcing will be used again
when the time comes. The best way to support Fox-2 right now is to help
it's predecessors get into orbit!
