DragonFly is not yet incorporated as a non-profit, meaning no tax benefit is available for donating time or goods to the project. However, developers can still use your contributed hardware and you can make non-tax-deductible donations through PayPal.
You can use the donate-button to make a non-tax-deductible donation through PayPal. The money received will be used to fund future hardware acquisitions by the project, code bounties and/or contract development and potentially to defer other ongoing costs. Matthew Dillon maintains primary ownership of this account. It is maintained as a segregated account and Matt will receive no compensation from donations. All donations go to the project. Donations may also be sent directly via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the past we had a policy of adding links to this page for donations of $100 USD or greater, but as of mid-July 2014 we are suspending that policy because it really isn't having the intended effect of promoting open-source projects. The list below is currently frozen. Keep in mind that Google will penalize the search results for pages that have a large number of links on completely unrelated websites.
Please email donations at dragonflybsd.org to make a request or when a request is filled, so that we may update this page. Requestors on this page should have at least one accepted contribution to DragonFly.
Donors, please contact the requestor directly (and CC: donations at dragonflybsd.org). You and the donating/receiving party must independently resolve any delivery issues. The DragonFly BSD Project is not responsible for any transactions.
Some tips on sending donated equipment through the mail: Mailing materials out of
the country usually requires some sort of customs declaration. State clearly
on any customs form that the equipment is used, is a gift to an individual and
not a business, and the value of the equipment (usually less than $50 USD).
Adding www.dragonflybsd.org as a reference can also help, as this provides additional information for a curious customs officer. It also may help to repeat that information in a letter inside the packaging, in case it is opened or damaged.
