The Free Software Foundation Europe is a non-profit non-governmental organisation. Our work is made possible by a community of volunteers, Fellows and donors. Your donations are critical to our strength and autonomy. They enable us to continue working for Free Software wherever necessary, and to be an independent voice.

If you donate more than 480 Euro in a year, we would like to add your name to our donors list. For online donations, you can use the checkbox "I want to remain anonymous" to indicate whether or not being listed there is ok with you. If you send your donation by bank transfer, please contact us about this.

Additionally, you can include our Sponsoring buttons on your own web page to show your support for us.

In some countries, donations to us can be deducted from income tax. Currently, this is the case in Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
