Support us

As an association in the free software world, our main founding sources are donations, subscriptions and subsidies.

Our work is fully volunteer and costs us a lot of time.

With your help, we'd like to satisfy the financial needs of the association, which can include :

  • The association servers (see our technical report) ;
  • Our administrative formalities (bank account, insurance, ...) ;
  • The travel expenses for our speakers and ours for free software meetings
  • The costs of the material resources used to hold our events ;
  • Eventual subscription fees for the association to free culture related meetings, where appropriate and reasonable ;
  • Eventual meals, pastries, drinks to bring during debates for our guests ;
  • Eventual goodies (tee-shirts, stickers, buttons, business cards, ...) in order to promote our activities.

For the long term, we will publish a financial report of our activities.


You can give any amount of your choice to the association. Any help is very welcome.
