Contribute to the D Language Foundation

The D Language Foundation is a 501(c) non-profit public charity devoted to advancing open source technology related to the D programming language.

The D Language Foundation:

We are always in search of ways to improve the D programming language experience for new and existing D users. Whether that means hiring programmers to carry out contract work, sponsoring bounties on specific tasks, providing scholarships for students performing D-related research, or anything else that benefits the D community and ecosystem, we cannot make any of it happen without funding. We welcome contributions from both organizations and individuals. Your help is highly appreciated and is what enables the D Language Foundation to fulfill its mission.

How will my donation be used?

Donations go toward supporting the D Language Foundation's regular, non-sponsored operations (DConf expenses, part-time workers, blog post bounties, reimbursements, etc.). One of the important ways we make use of donations is in awarding scholarships to highly skilled students. Each $5 you donate contributes to approximately one hour of work by a talented graduate student, and these hours add quickly toward important projects that further the state of the art in the D programming language.

How can I donate?

The D Language Foundation is a non-profit organization

By the Foundation bylaws, its officers (Walter Bright, Andrei Alexandrescu and Ali Çehreli) cannot receive income from the Foundation, which preempts a variety of conflicts of interest.

For US taxpayers, contributions to the D Language Foundation are tax-deductible. The D Language Foundation is a 501(c) non-profit public charity registered in the state of Washington, USA. You should consult your tax adviser for rules as they apply to your situation.

Donations to the D Language Foundation are currently not tax-deductible in most other countries as they require an organisation to be incorporated in that country and the D Language Foundation does currently not have the resources to do so.
