<p><small>Please note that Paypal is <i>not</i> a good tool for small donations, especially recurring ones, due to its <a href="https://www.paypal.com/for-you/fees" target="_blank">fees structure</a>: in addition to the 3% percentage fee and currency conversion fees, there is also a fixed fee (around 30¢). So if you plan to donate less than 10$, it would be better to come to <a href="https://guadec.org" target="_blank">GUADEC</a> or the <a href="https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/conference/" target="_blank">GStreamer conference</a> and pay a beer to one of the Pitivi maintainers (and it's better that way, because then you can have a face to face conversation!)</small></p>

<p>You can support us <a href="https://liberapay.com/Pitivi/">through Liberapay</a>, a Free/libre and ethical donation system owned by a non-profit organization based in France. Currently, for simplicity, Liberapay donations are handled by <a href="https://developer.pitivi.org/The_people.html">Alexandru</a>.</p>

<h1>What do you do with the money?</h1>
<p>It all depends on how much we receive. With small amounts, we can pay a couple of beers for contributors at GUADEC. With a couple of thousand dollars per year, we could organize one or two Pitivi hackfests per year (reimburse some travel fees for contributors to attend). With larger amounts, we could also sponsor some interns to work on our set of technologies.</p>
<p>The amount of money we typically receive is quite low (averaging between 10-15$ per month). Therefore, as it stands now we can:</p>
Donations and the GSoC fees we receive allow us to:
<ul>
<li>Buy some drinks to contributors during conferences such as <a href="http://guadec.org">GUADEC</a>.</li>
<li>Offer some more drinks or tokens of gratitude to people from other open source projects who make our lives significantly easier (ex: fixing a bug that prevents us from working efficiently)</li>
<li>Buy a small amount of promotional material (such as stickers) to spread the love</li>
<li>Cover hosting expenses for the daily flatpak package.</li>
<li>Hire maintainers and experienced contributors for occasional focused work.</li>
</ul>
<p>Currently, for simplicity, individual Paypal donations are handled by Jean-François (nekohayo). Liberapay is handled by Alexandru (aleb).</p>
