Help Joomla! Grow

Post by brad » Wed Mar 15, 2006 1:32 am

We announced the birth of baby Joomla! just over six months ago. During that time baby "J!" has matured into a highly-acclaimed, award-winning CMS of choice. Not a bad effort for something so new. Most of us know Joomla's heritage and the massive contributions made by developers and community members to further our aims and ensure its future.

For some time now we've been unable to accept donations to the Joomla! project — much to the frustration of many members of the community.

We can't count the number of times people have wanted to make financial contributions and, we must be honest, the money has been needed. But we couldn't accept it. There's a simple reason for the delay, we wanted tick all the right boxes to ensure everything was done correctly. Thanks to the professional guidance of the Software Freedom Law Center (based in New York), we are now, through Open Source Matters, officially registered as a not-for-profit.

Donations are always welcome ... and at the moment they will help in some specific areas. We have several expos coming up where Joomla! intends to participate.

While Joomla is looking for ways to raise income from other sources, such as tasteful advertising, we are still expecting to rely on community suport through donations to keep this baby fed.

So, without further ado, we are pleased to announce we are now in a position to accept donations to help support our open source project.

If you want to help out the effort and want to add the banner to the corner of your sites, you can put this code

Code: Select all

<script src="http://www.joomla.org/donate_ribbon.js"></script>
right under the tag in your pages/templates.
