I personally donate to Solus, but I would like to see just how many people give their money to FOSS projects.
Not regularly no, but I do make one-time donations whenever I stumble upon a new program that I like. For example, KDE and random apps from F-droid.
Firefox, my favourite browser, I’m hoping Mozilla won’t have to get revenue through other ways (data collection /ads) , thus I’m making a point of donating a small amount to the likes of Firefox, Wikipedia, etc
True, they got a lot of money from google to keep google as the default search engine.
Yeah, which I don’t complain about, even though I change to ddg instantly lol
It’s unfortunate that they make a huge amount of their profits from that though
I sometimes donate 10/20 to projects I find really cool and/or that I use regularly, mostly through Liberapay.
I donate 10% of my income, generally 10-25% of that 10% to one time FOSS donations. It does not sound like much, 2.5%, but it’s a ton, thanks US salary!
that’s super generous! Thank you for doing that!

That’s quite a lot.
I donate to a bunch of projects with liberapay
I donated to Wikipedia and Mediagoblin. Wikipedia because I use it almost daily and Mediagoblin because I wanted an open-source alternative to YouTube. I was not aware of Peertube at the time and Mediagoblin was the closest thing to fit that description.
No, I haven’t donated to any open source projects but I have made some small contributions to several projects that I use.
Mainly Framasoft, especially Peetube, and liberapay.
Usually some small passion project that usually get no donations otherwise. My small donations will never be enough to fund actual work on a project, but I hope I can show these people that their effort is appreciated by buying them a beer or so.
Yes, to conduit.rs Because I think an alternative Matrix server implementation apart from the official one should exist.
I’ve been a $5/month supporter of the Godot patreon for a long while.
Godot is a really cool project
I have been a supporting member of the Trisquel GNU/Linux project for about ten years now. To date I have contributed €903.00 to the project.
Typically over the years it’s Android apps I regularly use that are written well that are a benefit to my day to day life. I’ll typically throw a little money at least once a year. I’ve thrown AntennaPod money a couple times in a year because I live on that thing, that app is completely indistinguishable from any mainstream app, looks great, it’s feature rich and I feel is better than half the proprietary apps out there.
Liberapay, to disroot, snopyta, fdroid, etc. Two hundred dollars in a year or so. It’s not much but I’m still a student and doesn’t have a stable income
I’d say that 200 is a generous amount.
I’ve been donating $5/month to tulir (https://github.com/tulir), who makes the mautrix Matrix bridges as well as maubot.
