Donations to The SplendosBSD Project
The SplendosBSD project is a voluntary software group funded by donations. In addition to the SplendosBSD operating system, we also develop the U-XDE graphical user interface, perfectly matched to SplendosBSD system software, and the specialized LoopholeBSD operating system. We hope that our efforts for high-quality, secure and stable software will lead to contributions to improve and sustain our build / development infrastructure and to cover our power / internet costs. Your donation to the SplendosBSD project can greatly enhance the codebase of the project. We want to continue the funded development in other different areas of the system, including:
We invite the SplendosBSD community and all organizations to help us achieve these goals. This fundraiser is a great opportunity for everyone to contribute to the SplendosBSD project and help us improve SplendosBSD and our other own projects. Please read below to learn more about donating. Thank you for supporting the SplendosBSD project!
The SplendosBSD Foundation
The SplendosBSD project has the idea of founding a nonprofit organization, The SplendosBSD Foundation, in the US. This should enable you, as a donor, to receive a donation receipt from SplendosBSD. At the moment we can not issue any donation receipts! The foundation of the SplendosBSD Foundation will be in one of the following states. The shortlist includes:
The SplendosBSD project will keep you up-to-date on any changes and advances in establishing the SplendosBSD Foundation.
Why donations are important
The SplendosBSD project is a project that produces open source software. This means
that it does not have a regular source of income, but relies on generous donations
from third parties.
The funding of the SplendosBSD project comes from different sources. Organizations
and individuals interested in SplendosBSD and other proprietary projects will
provide hardware, servers, and rack space to support key SplendosBSD project services
and enable developers to support new hardware platforms and peripherals.
It is important to understand that every donation is important. With no servers and
rack space in colocation facilities, we would not be able to provide high-quality
services such as regular builds and the various web and FTP services to our developers
and users. Without development hardware donations, we would not be able to support
the enormous bandwidth of platforms and peripherals. Advertising at events enables
us to present our work to others and to attract new developers and users. Each of
these functions is important for the current state of the SplendosBSD project.
How to Donate
Donations generally fall into three categories:
If you have something to offer that doesn't fall into one of these categories, don't fret! Just contact us at donations@SplendosBSD.net with your offer. Just because it's not the run-of-the-mill offer doesn't mean that we're not interested.
The Splendos project does not accept direct financial contributions. In the future, a sponsoring organization, the SplendosBSD Foundation, will accept financial contributions for us. For more information on financial contributions, visit the website of the SplendosBSD Foundation. Financial donations are currently rated as a gift!
The SplendosBSD project always needs computers. If you have a computer that you would like to donate to the project, please provide us with the following information:

Also, the SplendosBSD project always requires computer components. If you have hardware that you would like to donate to the Project, please contact us with the following information:
General device requirements
We try to spread these types of devices around our development community.
10Gb Ethernet Support
The SplendosBSD project is also working to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet devices. You can support us with the following hardware in the development:
