There's no such thing as a free service on the Internet!
Whether it's the people giving their time to maintain the software or paying for hardware running it, the electricity used to power the machines or the hosting space in the data-center. With the big popular companies that give "free" service, it is most likely your personal user data that is paying the price. Imagine a scope of their operation, the amount of staff, and hardware needed to serve billions of users world-wide. They aren't charity, and yet provide "free" service...
Disroot.org is run by volunteers and offers all the services free of charge. We do not collect information to sell to advertising companies or government agencies. Thus we must rely on donations and support from users of the services and the community. If you would like to keep the project going and create space for potential new users, you can use any of the methods below to make a financial contribution.
Remember, any amount of money counts! If all Disrooters would buy us a cup of coffee each month, we could run this service without any financial struggles.
Share our Good fortune
If we receive at least 400 EUR in donations, we share 15% of our surplus with the developers of the software we are using. Disroot would not exist without those developers.
Pay four Volunteers
If we have more than 632€ left at the end of the month, we pay to four Disroot Core members a volunteer fee of 158€ a month.

We are grateful for your donations and support!
With your help, we are getting closer to reaching our goal for financial sustainability, and we prove that a social model of economy is possible.
To thanks those of you that donate at least 10€, we will send a Disroot stickers pack. Don't forget to leave, in the reference of your donation, the postal address we should send this to.

If you have any hardware that could be used for the project (memory modules, servers, CPUs, harddrives, Raid/Network Cards, Network equipment, etc) please get in touch with us. Any piece of hardware is welcome. Things we can't use we can sell to cash out. We are also looking forward to any rack-space propositions.
