Parabola is accepting donations!

If you like the work we've been doing all these years, please consider making a donation to keeping the distro going :)

1 How can I contribute?

1.1 Parabola hacker or artist

You can consider becoming a Parabola hacker or artist!

1.2 Monetary donations

Parabola can currently accept donations via wire transfer, PayPal, Bitcoin, and FairCoin. These donations go toward expenses of the Parabola project. These donations go through Parabola's fiscal sponsor, Fundația Ceata, the Romanian nonprofit foundation for Free Software and Free Culture.

Alternatively, you may donate through Liberapay. Donations made through Liberapay go to Parabola contributors (rather than project expenses). We think that our developers and artists that are working full-time should be paid a reasonable living wage amount for their efforts, and any excess could be given as bounty to part-time volunteers for fixing complex bugs, and/or to help grow the much needed infrastructure.

2 In what way will my donation help Parabola?

Parabola is run by volunteers, and we've been happy to include more people in our community whenever we need to share the work load, but sometimes we need to cover some expenses, such as:

  • Servers (currently only one donated by n1md4, thank him if you see him around) :)

And some projects need special hardware which we aren't able to buy:

  • ARMv7 boards
  • Build servers, so we can build faster and securely

Also:

  • Paid hackers (they won't have to earn their wages by working anywhere else and would have dedicated time to fix long standing bugs and effort to Parabola)
  • A(nother) libre project can become sustainable

3 Thanks!
