Paypal Donations

Conservancy accepts donations on Evergreen’s behalf. A portion of the money goes to Conservancy to cover their operating expenses. Note that Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) charity in the USA, so donations in the USA may be tax-deductible.

On-line donations between $20 and $1000 have the lowest fees. Smaller and larger ones are subject to significantly higher fees by PayPal. Please consider a check or wire transfer for larger amounts.


Check or Wire

Donations by checks drawn in USD from banks in the USA (donations from banks outside of the US or not in USD should be handled by wire). Make checks payable to “Software Freedom Conservancy” and place “Directed donation: Evergreen” in the memo field.
