We have had many inquiries from folks who want to donate money to StillStream. We sincerely appreciate the thought, but we feel we cannot accept direct financial donations without compromising our non-commercial status. So instead, we invite you to consider other ways you can help us that don’t involve direct financial donations.
However, if you really feel strongly about wanting to donate money to our cause, then we have a good alternative for you. We have assembled a list of charities that we think do important work, and we invite you to donate to them on behalf of StillStream. They need the money more than we do, and to be honest their mission is at least a little bit more important than ours. Or, you could of course, donate to the charity of your own choice on behalf of StillStream, and that’s just as good as far as we are concerned.
So, if you strongly want to donate some money to somebody on behalf of StillStream, then we encourage you to use one of the PayPal donation buttons listed below, or to the worthy charity of your choice.
The Internet Archive
The Internet Archive, also known as archive.org, is a non-profit organization founded to preserve human knowledge with the purpose of offering permanent access for researchers, historians, and scholars to historical collections that exist in digital format. Since 1996 it has worked to prevent the internet and other digital materials from disappearing into the past. Collaborating with institutions including the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian, they are working to preserve our digital legacy for generations to come. To support their work, please use the following donation button (a PayPal account is NOT required):
Save The Children
Since World War I, Save The Children has worked tirelessly to provide food, medicine, and other essentials to starving and disadvantaged children around the world. We think this is very important work, and encourage you to support them in their efforts. Please give generously using the following donation button (a PayPal account is NOT required):

As we’ve said, please feel free to give instead to the alternate charity of your choosing. If you think their work is important, then we do too. But if you’re unsure who to give to, then please consider one of the above. Also note that we will be adding more worthy charities to donate to here as time passes, so be sure to check back.
Finally, thank you for being generous and supporting StillStream by supporting these important causes.
