Donations

Your donation to the OpenSSL team will support the ongoing development activities of the team members.

Please note that the OpenSSL Software Foundation (OSF) is incorporated in the the state of Delaware, United States, as a non-profit corporation. It does not qualify as a tax-exempt charitable organisation under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. We looked into it and concluded that 501(c)(3) status would require more of an investment in time and money than we can justify at present. This means that, for individuals within the U.S., donations to the OSF are not tax-deductible. Corporate donations can of course be written off as a business expense.

In addition to direct financial contributions in the form of donations or sponsorship you may also support the OpenSSL project financially with the purchase of a support contract, or by hiring OSF for consulting services or custom software development. We consider all sources of funding to be sponsors, because we use all such funding, whether donations or pay for services rendered, for the same purpose -- to improve and maintain the OpenSSL product.
