Donation offered

10 Sep 2018, 08:12

Today, I had a forum user offering a donation to me for my time spent on a problem.
I would like to redirect the donation towards the AHK community.

Please, can a moderator or someone with appropriate knowledge tell us if that is possible?
Is there a PayPal account?

Thanks for reading.

You certainly can! Note that AutoHotkey Foundation is a non-profit, so any donations go exclusively to business costs. See the contributions section of the foundation page. Thanks for the interest :)

The donation link looks very tiny and not so easy to find. Probably should be on more prominent places on the website. Nothing vulgar, just a bit more visible and easier to find.

A lot of people don't realize this. In fact, various corporations look for non-profits to donate to or will only donate to organizations they can get a tax write-off with.

The donation link was not made obvious because of chris' wishes. We do not want to make look like AutoHotkey is monetized, not even for a little bit.
but, yes, perhaps it could be made a little more obvious if one wants to search for it....
