Subject RE: How to make a donation?
Date Sun, 11 Sep 2011 18:26:06 GMT
There is no objection to donations to Apache.  However, they cannot be targeted.  They must
be donations to the Apache Software Foundation.  They cannot be designated for a particular
project or for a restricted purpose.

With regard to external groups accepting donations for whatever they do, ASF has not expressed
any concern.  It is important to avoid confusion of such organizations and their activities
with the ASF and any of its projects.

I've not heard a conclusive statement about Team OOo, so personally I would
not choose to make a donation there at present as the comments from Apache
officials suggest external fundraising is discouraged.

It's possible to donate to Apache at  (although you can't
direct the contribution to a specific project).

It's possible to donate to the ongoing development of LibreOffice, which is
also continuing development of, at

Hope that helps,
