Now that our crowdmatching system is in real testing, you can donate by pledging within the system itself! Then, in order to donate the most and see us succeed, the next step is to invite others to join the crowd and increase the matching effect for everyone!
If you have time to spare as well or instead of money, please consider volunteering.
During our beta testing / startup phase, we continue to welcome larger grants from those who want to see us accelerate to full working operations and supporting multiple projects.
All startup grant donors may (if they choose) be listed among our official launch sponsors and also may request the following thank-you gifts:
Snowdrift.coop is incorporated as a Michigan non-profit cooperative but does not currently have independent federal tax-exempt status. However, you can donate under 501(c)(3) to the Open Source Initiative specifying that they use the funds to support us, as we are now one of their incubator projects. Please contact us to get details for this process.
Note: As the OSI takes a modest administrative fee, it makes sense to donate directly to us if you do not need 501(c)(3) terms.
The following options offer easy ways to donate directly to us. Such donations are not tax-deductible.
Note: the convenient button above works with or without a Paypal account, but it costs us a 2.9% + $0.30 fee. To skip the fee, log-in to Paypal and send funds to firstname.lastname@example.org funded by your bank or Paypal balance (not by credit card or paypal credit) and marked as a gift.
