The Free Software Foundation Europe is a non-profit non-governmental organisation. Our work is made possible by a community of volunteers, supporters 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.

What happens next

If you donate more than 480 Euro in a year, we would like to add your name to our donors list. You can also remain anonymous.

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

Tax deduction

In some countries, donations to us can be deducted from income tax. Currently, this is the case in Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. A donation receipt is generally sent in the beginning of the year for donations received the previous year.
