Support the Linux Foundation

The Linux Foundation provides critical services to promote sustainable open source. Individual Supporter donations go directly into programs and resources that support growing communities.


The Linux Foundation is dedicated to protecting, promoting, and standardizing Linux. If you enjoy using Linux and believe in our mission, please consider making a donation. The Linux Foundation uses these funds to help fund the infrastructure and fellows, including Linus Torvalds, who help develop the Linux kernel.

You can make a donation to support the overall efforts of The Linux Foundation. All donations can be made using a credit card or PayPal. For any large donations that require a check or invoice, please contact us directly.


Please Note: Donations to The Linux Foundation are not generally deductible by US taxpayers.
