Every monthly meetup will have a donation box where any visitors are encourage to make a gold coin donation. This is not an obligation. This money will go towards running events such as Software Freedom Day and the various events. With added capabilities it will allow us to spread the word of free software and educate others in the installation and use of libre programs.
We occasionally collect a group donation for a free software project or organization. Here are a few ideas of things to donate to.
