Donate to the GeeXboX Project

July 27th, 2011

Why donating ?

GeeXboX is a free project, developed by individual developers on their spare time. Our team has no income and any help is fully appreciated to help us with development. Many users request new features from us, especially on hardware we do not own. Besides, hosting the web server, the domain name and providing the needed bandwidth to let you download GeeXboX’s ISO has a cost. Recently, we’ve been lucky that someone has provided us a free webserver but this may change at any time. Funding also helps our team to be involved in multiple conferences to talk and present GeeXboX to the world.

How can I help or donate ?

To donate does not necessarily mean giving money. Of course, if you really like GeeXboX and believe that the time used to develop it should be rewarded, your money donations are welcomed (they will be used to help meet goals requested from users, such as having better development conditions, i.e buying new hardware to add support …). If you want to contribute to the GeeXboX project you can make a donation using PayPal : it’s free, easy and of course you’re free to donate what you think our work deserves. The whole development team thanks you.

But you’re also able to help us from many others ways. If you can provide us dedicated servers, bandwidth, promotions, advertisement, or even specific piece of hardware, old computers stuff, please contact us, your help will be greatly welcomed. By the way, you can also help us with your own skills as we’re looking for translations maintainers, documentation maintainers and especially designers and drawers.

So, if you want to help us, just mail us . And, on behalf of all the developers and users, thank you for your help.
