Support the Django Software Foundation

Development of Django is supported by an independent foundation established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Like most open-source foundations, the goal of the Django Foundation is to promote, support, and advance the Django web framework.

How do I donate?

We accept donations via PayPal:

How will my donation be used?

The main focus of the Django Software Foundation is direct support of Django's developers. This means:

  • Organizing and funding development sprints so that Django's developers can meet face-to-face — we're far more productive that way.
  • Helping key developers attend these sprints and other community events by covering travel expenses to official Django meetups and sprints.

Do you accept donations from companies/corporations?

Yes. We also have a corporate sponsorship program. Tell your boss, and get in touch if you'd like to know more.

Can I choose a specific feature or project to support?

No: we don't allow donors to directly sponsor specific features.

However, we may be able to connect you to a Django developer who you can hire to work on a specific feature. Please get in touch if this sounds like something you'd like to pursue.

Is my donation tax deductible?

The Django Software Foundation is a Kansas non-profit corporation; we have pending tax-exempt status under IRC 501(c)(3). This means that donations are tax-deductible for US citizens; donors outside of the United States should consult a tax advisor.
