Donation Directory

From Wiki.OSArch

This is a directory with a list of the public links for donations and financial support of several free/libre software AEC projects. Please, if you like the work that they are doing, consider to visit the donation links listed bellow.

Money is just one way to help. You are always very welcome to post to our community forum if you want to talk about supporting our aims in other ways. You are also very welcome to add yourself to the page of OSArch_Supporters.

We have collected these public links from different sources, such as forums, official web pages, etc. Developers are working as volunteers for these projects and your support will be appreciated. We will try to have updated this list with the people's links that are currently working, but it is your responsibility to make an informed decision before making a donation.
