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 two ways to help out financially:
- Once-off donations
- Buy swag
Once-off donations are gratefully accepted.
You can donate via PayPal by 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.
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:
- $40/month for a VPS from Linode.com which is used for downloads, developer tools and First Time Wizard data.
- $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.
