Running a project like Fosstodon can be expensive and take a lot of time. We have a fantastic team of volunteers to help moderate and manage Fosstodon, but if you want to help support the project financially you can do so in a couple of ways.
We have a Patreon site set up that allows our members to donate a regular amount of money to the Fosstodon project. This can be a little or as much as you’re comfortable with, but we do have a few default tiers that offer some perks:
Tier 1: Fosstodon Contributor ($1/month)
You will get a great big thank you from us as Fosstodon. You’re helping us keep the lights on. You get to vote on which FOSS project(s) we donate to.
Tier 2: Fosstodon Lover ($2/month)
You’re helping to not only keep the lights on, but ensure the future of Fosstodon. You get to vote on which FOSS project(s) we donate to.
Tier 3: Fosstodon Legend ($5/month)
By pledging $5/month you instantly become a Fosstodon legend in our eyes. You’re helping us keep the lights on, ensuring we have a future AND allowing us to make donations to other FOSS projects. You get to vote on which FOSS project(s) we donate to.
You also get an @fosstodon.org forwarding address to the email address of your choosing (email us after setting up the pledge and we will set up your forwarder).
If you would prefer to make a one-off donation to the Fosstodon project, that’s fine too. Please visit our PayPal page if you would like to make a one-off donation.
Other ways to support us
We don’t just need financial support. If you don’t want to support us financially, that’s absolutely fine – Fosstodon is a free service and always will be.
If you’re a Fosstodon member and want to contribute to the project without your wallet, here are some ideas:
- Report any posts that you feel violate our CoC.
- Keep sharing interesting posts that spark discussion and debate.
- Be excellent to each other.
- Volunteer to contribute to the Fosstodon Hub.
Finally, we wanted to end this page with a quick thank you. The support that the community gives us, both financially and otherwise, really helps Fosstodon to continue to go from strength to strength.
