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.

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!

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 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.

I sometimes donate 10/20 to projects I find really cool and/or that I use regularly, mostly through Liberapay.

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.

Yes, to conduit.rs Because I think an alternative Matrix server implementation apart from the official one should exist.

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.

I’ve been a $5/month supporter of the Godot patreon for a long while.

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.

No, I haven’t donated to any open source projects but I have made some small contributions to several projects that I use.
