General GRASS GIS efforts

GRASS GIS is an affiliated project and founding member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). Funds offered to GRASS GIS are used to sponsor general GRASS GIS efforts, especially the organization of Community Sprints. These funds are managed by the Project Steering Committee (PSC). See here to learn more about our Community Sprints.

Please donate to the GRASS GIS project!

We are currently collecting funds for the next GRASS GIS community sprint in 2018 in Bonn (the last event in 2016 also in Bonn, was a great success!).

Why donate?

The GRASS GIS project is a volunteer-based organization. There is no cost to participate in the project itself or to use the software. But with our own budget we can produce even better software and documentation for you. And if you don't have time to contribute, maybe a (small) donation makes you feel better when using GRASS GIS.

Options for money transfer

Transfer money via Paypal

Please contact the GRASS PSC chair for other options, if needed.

How is the money used?

The donations are controlled in full transparency by the GRASS Project Steering Committee (PSC). We use to organize face-to-face coding sessions (such as the GRASS Community Sprint in autumn 2017) - financial support can be used to make developers' participation possible. Also bug fixing may be financed - community polls will identify outstanding problems which cannot be fixed on a voluntary basis; or specific bug-bounties can be arranged (please contact us first).

Your ideas are welcome too!
