As we approach the end of the year, we begin the season of giving. What would suit the holidays better than giving to the entire world?

Here is a unique way to give back to KDE, allowing us to keep giving free software to humankind.

KDE is committed to improving technology and software to make the world a better place. We produce great quality free software that everyone is free to use or modify without any cost or restriction.

We want to bring the solutions we are offering to the next level. By participating in this fundraiser, you'll be part of the improvements we'll put into our products, for example our educational software, so kids can have better tools for school; our productivity applications, so you have the best tools for the workplace; and our desktop so we can all have a fun and productive experience when interacting with our computers.

Donating to KDE is not for you, it is for the entire world.

As a way to say thank you, starting with € 30 we will send a KDE-themed postcard, designed by our community of artists, to an address of your choice. You will get an extra card for every additional € 10 donation. Get cards for yourself and for your family and friends to show them you care for freedom. It's the perfect way to spread the festive cheer and donate to your favorite project at the same time.

Postcard Design #3 Postcard Design #4

In addition we would like to give a special thank you to our highest donors. We are giving away 9 unique art prints in size A4. At our last conference, QtCon, we asked 46 prominent current and former KDE contributors (including core developers from Plasma, KDE Edu and Qt, board members, designers, community organizers, translators and more) to sign artwork created for KDE's 20th birthday. This is a one-time chance to get a nice and unique KDE print for your wall.

The top 9 donors are calculated aggregating by paypal address, make sure you use the same account if you donate multiple times.

This campaign will end on December 31st 2016 at 23:59 UTC.

Where Your Donations Go

Last year KDE spent about € 50 000 on travel and accomodation of more than 100 contributors for various sprints throughout the year.

Sprints are in person meetings and are really important for a team of hard-working volunteers around the world to focus their efforts and discuss technical matters around the project. The amount of output we get from the sprints is really worthwhile for all users of the software.

Remaining money gets spent on our infrastructure, we have a large portfolio of servers hosting websites, code, continuous integration and a lot more. A full breakdown can be seen in our quarterly reports.

Notes:

  • We will use your paypal email address to contact you and ask for the addresses to send the postcards.
  • You will be able to choose between the generic thank you or custom text for the postcard.
  • The first shipment of cards will be December 8th, after that there will be a shipment every week until the end of the Fundraiser.
  • If there is a tie in the last position of the top 9 donors we'll let random.org select the winner amongst the tied donors.

If you prefer to use international bank transfers please see this page.
Please write us an email so we can add you to the list of donors manually.
