The IPFire Project is entirely independent and funded by donations which is
quite a tough thing to do these days. It is hard to get donations when you don't
have a budget for advertising and encourage people to do more. Unfortunately,
donations are at a record low.

That is why we are starting a new challenge: 150 new long-standing donations by
the end of the year. That will set up the project for a great year 2019 - and
the future is all we are about!


Every donation matters

We appreciate everyone who contributed to the project in the past and we made
very good use of every single penny ever donated to the project. That does not
only go for financial contributions, but also all other contributions in form of
code and time. But a long-term donation is better because it is not only a
single event. It is an investment into the project and a commitment to support
it and continuous improvement!

It does not matter if you give little or a lot, but it would be appreciated if
everyone gives something. Help us to reach out to others and ask them to donate,
too. The more people, the better and the more this becomes a community effort!

Instead of asking for a certain sum, we are just asking for a number of new
people supporting us regularly. To help us out more, of course donating more
helps more, so please try to give as much as you can.


We have a long way ahead of us and need your help

Through our new website and collaboration with Lightning Wire Labs, we are
accepting monthly donations and we recommend to everyone to set up one instead
of a one-time donation.

We have also improved on payment methods: We support credit card, SEPA Direct
Debit and SEPA Bank Transfer to make it fast and easy for use as well as protect
your privacy. Also, they do not collect any high fees which ensures that a
maximum of the money is going to the project instead of the payment provider. We
no longer support PayPal.
