Donate to FOSDEM

FOSDEM is an event organized for the community by the community. As such, we think it is important to keep access to the event free.

The event is organized by volunteers who don't get paid and don't have commercial interests in the event. As one might imagine, however, the organization costs a lot of money and other resources.

The main 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 ask for support from the open source community on a voluntary basis.

Donors Return

We're asking you to support the event by making a voluntary donation to make FOSDEM happen.

Some gifts are given for donations depending on the amount of money, to each donor:

FOSDEM ASBL/VZW (the non-profit association) was founded in April 2002.
Donations are not tax deductible.

How ?

So, how can I contribute to FOSDEM ?

By making a donation at the Infodesk during the conference.

To avoid any problems or misunderstandings in the future, read the following VERY CAREFULLY: you don't buy these items from FOSDEM — we give them to you to thank you for your support. We can't guarantee anything. In case of problems (whatever they may be), we can't give you your money back.
