What are you doing with the money?

The funds will be used to foster the growth of Foswiki. Community input will be used to help guide the direction of expeditures. Some examples of costs associated with keeping an open-source project alive include:

  • Facilities for yearly summits and FoswikiCamp
  • Tax Advisor
  • Technical infrastructure (hosting and bandwidth)
  • Advertising to attract users and developers
  • Lawyers and legal advice
  • Travel grants for developers to travel to summits (as deemed necessary)

How much should I donate?

Individuals: If you are an individual and have a private interest, everything above 5,00 Euro/USD is perfect. It simply depends on what you can afford. Please also consider investing some time in the project. In a lot of cases, this can be more effective than money.

Companies: Note we will most likely be able to offer a tax-deductible receipt for your donation. Please consider a donation of 5,00 Euro/USD to 50,00 Euro/USD per employee per year that uses TWiki or Foswiki, a similar cost to what you would pay for commercial equivalents. Note with Foswiki you only need to contribute if you are truly satisfied, and you can stop donating, whenever you want or need to — no questions asked.

Thanks for your support.
