90% of donations to the @libreoffice projects are coming from individuals.
Companies unfortunately do not contribute that much in economical or material way on an project that is the major barrier between freedom of choice and a full monopoly by Microsoft in the office productivity market.

Organisations should realise that a strong LibreOffice helps in creating a healthy competition and lower also their costs.

So, please, contribute in any way you can to help yourself.

@paolo @libreoffice I contribute regularly. And in the U.S. it is tax deductible, if that matters to you.

Hi @Ahuka, your contributions matter to me a lot.
It's thanks to people like you that @libreoffice can carry on developing the best Open Source Office Suite available.
Apart from donations there are also other ways to help out:

68% des contributions en code proviennent d'entreprises. C'est pas seulement de l'argent qu'il faut pour faire un logiciel.

The majority of that 68% comes from members of the ecosystem which pays specialised developers to fix bugs and write new features. They generally get money from TDF tenders and by selling their services.

95% of companies that could contribute with documentations, translations, some code, money or other things do not contribute back.

1 in 20 isn't terrible, although there's a lot more education that needs to happen. The perception of people getting handouts instead of being part of a productive cooperative is as corrosive as it is pervasive.

Libreoffice Writer is how we write scripts, and Calc is how we do our accounting documents. It's an important piece of infrastructure to maintain.
