TYPO3: Donations Welcome!
TYPO3 is an Open Source project, dependent in large parts on donations. This page is for those who want to donate money - be it once, be it regularly, be it a small or a big amount. Everything is set up for an easy donation process. Try it out, you'll be amazed how good it feels!
The TYPO3 Association is a legal entity registered in Switzerland under Swiss law and regulations. Once you donate through a membership, you can claim the fee as tax deductible in most countries. Please note: Most countries of the world don't accept donations to a Swiss Association as tax deductible if they exceed a certain amount. Please check with the rules and regulations in your country.
This applies to German companies and users only. We formed a partnership with the FFIS e.V. which will provide you with donation receipts for your tax return. Please note: in accordance with German law, donation receipts are only issued for donations of 200.00 EUR and above. For amounts below 200.00 EUR, a "Vereinfachter Spendennachweis" will suffice. Please download this document for information.
The best way to donate
We are happy to accept any kind of donation, though the most convenient and sustainable way is to become a member of the TYPO3 Association.
Annual memberships start for as little as 100 EUR and go up to 10,000 EUR, so every individual and every company has the possibility to donate according to their means. In most countries, an association membership also is the easiest way to make donation expenses tax deductible. As for TYPO3, reliable funding is the only way to secure its future development.
Donate to a code sprint
Most of the teams have requested budget for code sprints in the previous year. That usually means that travel costs and hotel are paid on a budget supplied by the TYPO3 Association. The location is usually covered by a TYPO3 company and in rare occasion a location needs to be rented. The company that supplies the location usually provides some coffee and tea, but drinks and food are not included in the budget. This is an opprtunity for you to get engaged.
