Support the FOSDEM organisation and get a return!
FOSDEM is an event for the community, by the community. As such, we
think it is important to keep access to the event free.
FOSDEM is organised by volunteers who don't get paid and don't
have commercial interests in the event. However, as you must realise,
organising such an event costs a lot of money.
The primary characteristic of FOSDEM is that it is a non-commercial event. To keep it that way, we
think the best way to fund the event is to get support from the community
on a voluntary basis. Therefore, FOSDEM is now gratefully accepting
financial donations from visitors. To thank donators, we have produced
some packages in return for their support. Here is a description of
the packages corresponding to the amount contributed:
You can't choose the book you get, but it may be possible to exchange
your book with other visitors if you would prefer.
- 25 euros: t-shirt
- 50 euros: t-shirt + O'Reilly pocket guide
- 100 euros: t-shirt + O'Reilly book
- 150 euros: tshirt + O'Reilly book + chance to win 4 books of your choice from O'Reilly
- 200 euros:tshirt + O'Reilly book + chance to win a SHARP SL-5000D! (to be confirmed mid january though, when we receive the device!!)
FOSDEM ASBL/VZW (the association) will be founded during December.Donations above 25 euros should be tax deductible for Belgian people as we are going to ask the aggreation to legal authorities(others
must check their national regulations).
So, how do you contribute to FOSDEM?
