At It’s FOSS, we are committed to help Open Source and Linux community by writing about various projects and thus help the projects grow.
But it’s not the only way we help the open source projects. We also donate some part of our income to various open source projects.
To keep things transparent, I have created this page so that you can follow (if interested) all the donations made by It’s FOSS (i.e. you and me):

I’ll try to update this page as much as possible. Donation is actually one of the many ways to help Linux grow. This is my way to contribute to the Open Source community, in addition to running It’s FOSS.
