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:
- holds and defends the copyright and other intellectual property rights for the D programming language.
- provides resources for furthering the development and adoption of the D programming language.
- awards scholarships to highly skilled students.
- organizes the yearly DConf, the international annual conference of D Language developers and users.
- pays for hardware costs (e.g. this website, dmd downloads, the D tour and more).
- is an accepted Google Summer of Code (GSOC) organization, with projects hosted during GSOC 2016 and GSOC 2019.
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.

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.
If you have a question about donations, please write to the D Language Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
