Backers are individuals who donate a minimum of $5.00 and no maximum amount. As a project backer, specify how you want your donations to be used and track expenses in transparent public ledgers.

Do these steps:

  1. Open CommunityBridge Funding.
    Projects appear in alphabetical order.
  2. Click Donate on a project of interest.
    You are prompted to log in if you have not already done so.
    The New Donation form appears and lists the organizations that are associated with your project.
  3. Select Individual.
    The I want to give options show preset amounts for individual donations.

  4. Select a preset amount or click in the I want to give field and enter a dollar amount.
  5. Select a donation frequency option: One-time or Monthly.

     Recurring donations...

    If you choose to donate on a monthly basis, you will be billed upon submitting the donation, and will continue to be billed on the first calendar day of each subsequent month thereafter, until you choose to stop the recurring donation. By electing to donate on a recurring basis, you acknowledge that your donation will automatically renew and have a recurring payment feature, and that unless and until you opt out of the auto-renewal of the recurring donation, which can be done through the CommunityBridge Funding service, any recurring donation you have signed up for will be automatically renewed for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the initial term originally selected. In connection with each of your recurring donations, you authorize The Linux Foundation and/or its third-party payment processors to charge your payment method in the amount of the applicable recurring donation and any taxes, fees or other charges. You may cancel your recurring donation by logging into your account and changing your donation settings or by contacting us at

  6. (Optional) In the Donation allocation drop-down list, designate a project goal for your donation to support. The project maintainer may adjust fund allocations at their discretion, and is not required to use the funds per your requested allocation. If you have a strict fund allocation target, please contact your Linux Foundation administrator.
  7. Credit or debit card lets you add a default card or edit a default card to use for your donation payment. Click Add Card or Edit Card to add or edit a card, respectively. Enter your card details and click Submit
  8. Review your donation summary and your donation amounts in the Review Donation section. Notice the fee amounts and the amount that the Linux Foundation waives.

  9. Read and agree to the CommunityBridge Platform Use Agreement and the other agreements and policies incorporated therein. Click Submit Donation or Submit Subscription (the button changes dynamically depending on your donation type).
    Your Accounts page appears. 

    At any time, you can go to your user account  and select My Transactions to edit your monthly donation amount—click Edit monthly donation on the project of interest.
