Why should I donate?

At IPFire, we are working hard to provide you with a free firewall distribution that is like no other. We release updates regularly and enhance functionality to make IPFire more secure, faster and easier to use.

To achieve our high standards that we have set for ourselves, we need your help. Only with your donation, we can get the right tools, people and utilities that we need to make our work most efficient and reach our maximum potential. Only with your donation, we can achieve our vision to make the Internet a safer place that is fair for everyone and giving equal opportunities.

How much should I give?

We are grateful for every single donation, but of course, we appreciate if you help us as much as you can.

We rely on steady contributions from companies to keep the project healthy and encourage them to set up a monthly donation.

Why do you need my address in order to process a donation?

We understand that your privacy is very important.

We ask for a minimum amount of information required to process credit card donations, including billing addresses. This allows our payment processor to verify your identity, process your payment, and prevent fraudulent charges to your credit card.

We keep your information private - if you have questions, please refer to Lightning Wire Labs' Privacy Policy.

If you would rather not fill in your information on our online donation form, you can send your donation via SEPA bank transfer.

Is my donation tax deductible?

IPFire is not registered as a charitable organization and therefore donations are not tax deductible in Germany or the European Union.

For donors outside of the European Union, please consult your tax advisor about whether your donation is tax deductible.

How do I cancel or change my recurring donation?

Your credit card statements or bank statements will contain a link that you can follow to cancel your donation at any time.
