Help the SME Server project

Information.png Tip:
Koozali Foundation Inc (a Non-Profit Corporation) and it's community are a collaborative effort of volunteers. You can contribute in many ways to SME Server like described in Volunteering, but if you lack the skills or simply want to support SME Server in a financial way you can donate money. There are two ways to donate money to SME Server.

Koozali Inc is happy to supply an invoice for any donations received, simply email

The preferred way is using the Donate option (located in the menu bar) in the forums. You are free to choose the amount and you can choose to donate monthly, yearly or only once.

The benefit of donating through your forums account is that your forum user name will receive a badge, showing your donation status.

Donations will be made through PayPal

The second way is to donate money by using PayPal directly. Just click on the button below to be taken to the Koozali SME Server PayPal donation page, but unlike a donation via the forums, you will not receive a forum badge.

Donations will be made through PayPal

Thank you very much for your help
