Like most other voluntary open source projects, OpenLP has no income and is entirely funded by the personal funds of the developers. We have a number of fixed costs, like server hosting, domain names, and the like. If you'd like to help us out, please consider donating to our cause.
There are three types of donations:
- Once-off donations
- Regular donations
- Buy swag
Once-off donations are gratefully accepted.
You can donate via PayPal buy clicking the button.
You will be guided to create a PayPal account if you don't have one already.
Donate to us via Bitcoin using the address below.
We also accept donations via debit or credit card.
While once-off donations are nice, regular donations are much more useful to us. They help to cover our month-to-month costs.
PayPal-based automated donation service.
We don't currently have automated Bitcoin donations, but you're welcome to use Bitcoin.
We are currently investigating an option for automated debit or credit card donations.
One other way you can help us financially is by buying stuff from our online store. There are T-shirts, cups, hats, USB drives, and other things for sale, and all proceeds go to OpenLP.
Here's a breakdown of our regular costs:
- $20/month for a VPS from Linode.com, which we'd like to upgrade to the next level, which will cost us $40/month.
- $10/month for a backup service, also from Linode.com.
- $17/year for our main domain, openlp.org. See Gandi.net's pricing page for information on domain name costs.
- $35/year for our developer domain, openlp.io.
This comes to roughly $8 per week. To be able to upgrade to the next level, we will need roughly $12.50 per week.
