Perl 6
Perl 6 Donations and Fundraising: Revision 7
{toc: }

^ Introduction


The purpose of this page is to consolidate information and discussions on Perl 6 and Parrot fundraising, with the aim of greatly increasing financial support for Perl 6 development.

This page is intended to become more general in scope:

* The initial focus on financial fundraising doesn't preclude soliciting other types of useful resources (such as test hardware).
* The initial focus on Perl 6 and Parrot doesn't preclude supporting other Perl 6 development efforts (such as Pugs or SMOP).


Donations and fundraising tend to be an unnecessarily contentious issues. *Please keep the concurrent version of "TIMTOWTDI"<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_is_more_than_one_way_to_do_it> in mind.*

Also of interest: "Perl 6 Sponsors and Supporters (Thanks!!)"{link: [Perl 6 People] Perl 6 Sponsors and Supporters (Thanks!!)}.

^ How to Help Now


"The Perl Foundation"<http://donate.perlfoundation.org> is the focus of Perl support.

^ General Fundraising Discussions

^^ Background

This wiki page had its genesis in the following fundraising thead on Perl 6 Users:

> http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl6.users/2008/02/msg685.html

That thread had some independent continuations on the language and compiler groups. There were additional off-list discussions, some of which are also reflected here.

^^ Current Status of Perl 6 Fundraising

^^^ Pending Fundraising Questions

These questions are presently under consideration (as of 2008-02-24), and this section will be updated in a week or two when key people are available to answer this.

* What changes are needed for the Perl Foundation to accept earmarked donations for specific Perl 6 projects, tasks, or developers?
* What will be the process for making such donations?
