A general donation to Simple Open Source Fund Inc. helps fund ongoing development and enhancements to the open-source software we support.
We try to get contributions by our sponsor companies to cover operating expenses first. This strategy helps to accumulate maximum funds available for development.
Funds are used for development and Canadian student coders/researchers in IT-related studies should consider looking into implementing a fix/feature from our bounty program.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are funds going to generating only administrative expenses?
NO! Our goal is to specifically improve open source software without the time-consuming bureaucracy and hidden agendas of self-interest. You can be confident that your donation will be used to genuinely improve the open-source software as outlined in our bounties.
How can I contribute to a specific bug fix/feature addition?
We have a special bug/feature bounty program just for this reason - so that community users of the open-source software we support can request specific fixes/features that are important to them. Please see our page on this here.
