Helping TuxFamily

TuxFamily is a non-profit organization, which lives on donations and volunteers. You can help TuxFamily by several means:

  • Donating
  • Becoming a member of TuxFamily.org
  • Donating hardware for our servers
  • Helping or joining the staff


You can make a donation to TuxFamily by direct transfer, PayPal or Flattr. If you can, please use direct transfer, as there will be no additional fee involved. Please note French people may also make a donation using checks: please refer to the French version.

By direct transfer

Due to numerous abuses, we cannot provide anymore our banking information publicly, before doing a direct transfer please ask our banking information by sending a mail to ca@association.tuxfamily.org.

By PayPal

PayPal is a fast and easy way to donate money to TuxFamily.org.

Using Flattr

FLattr allows you to give a small amount of money every month. We appreciate this kind of support very much, as it makes us able to have sufficient funds to face emergencies.
