FLOSS Donations


Category: Lists


There are many ways to show your appreciation of and contribute to Free/Libre Open Source (FLOSS) projects, including:

  • Organizing or volunteering to serve at a meetup
  • Creating or editing documentation
  • Writing about or promoting a project
  • Performing translations
  • Posting feature requests or reporting bugs
  • Submitting code

If you do not have the time for these options, monetary contributions are an alternative, if you have the means to do so. However, it can be hard to find the appropriate places to submit your donations.

The following is a collection of donation links to FLOSS projects that greatly contribute to user freedom, privacy/security, and science.
