Donations

phpMyAdmin is a member project of Software Freedom Conservancy. Conservancy is a not-for-profit organization that provides financial and administrative assistance to open source projects. Since Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) charity incorporated in New York, donors can often deduct the donation on their USA taxes.

As a free software project, phpMyAdmin has almost no revenues itself. On the other side, we have some expenses. Currently most of the project's funds are used to hire contractors for development and bug fixes, and for travel costs to allow team members to meet at conferences.

For the general public, the suggested donation amount is 10 USD.

PayPal

We invite you to contribute money to our project using the above PayPal button. PayPal is one of the most used online payments methods, it also accepts all major credit cards.

Check or Wire

We can also accept donations drawn in USD from banks in the USA (donations from banks outside of the US or not in USD should be handled by wire). Make checks payable to "Software Freedom Conservancy, Inc." and place "Directed donation: phpMyAdmin" in the memo field. Checks should be mailed to:

Software Freedom Conservancy, Inc.
137 Montague ST STE 380
BROOKLYN, NY 11201 USA

Conservancy can accept wire donations, but the instructions vary depending on the country of origin. Please contact accounting@sfconservancy.org for instructions.

Stock donations

Conservancy also accepts stock donations on behalf of the phpMyAdmin project. If you would like to donate stock, please contact accounting@sfconservancy.org for instructions on how to initiate the transfer.

Donations will be used for the promotion of phpMyAdmin, mostly by allowing team members to visit various conferences. Thanks.
