Where does the money go?

Your generous donation helps to pay salaries for employees and contractors who participate amongst the wider KDE Community to create, document, and promote KDE software. It also helps to pay for the cost of hosting conferences and development sprints, server infrastructure, and legal fees incurred defending free software.

Support An Engaged Community

Our community has developed a wide variety of applications for communication, work, education and entertainment. We have a strong focus on finding innovative solutions to old and new problems, creating a vibrant, open atmosphere for experimentation.
