Please support our project with your donation today
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.
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.
We do accept direct transfers through SEPA. These are our bank details:
Right now, we do not use PayPal for donations, but we are working on bringing that back soon.
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.
If you would rather not fill in your information on our online donation form, you can send your donation via SEPA bank transfer.
Credit card fraud is a serious and common problem. To avoid that you and we fall victim of that, we comply with PCI DSS, which is mandatory in Europe.
That means that we never handle any credit card data or store it on our systems. The entire transaction is securely handled by our payment provider and our systems are regularly audited to ensure that we implement this standard correctly.
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.
We are based in Germany. Donations by credit card from other countries my be subject to an international payment fee charged by your credit card issuer. This is usually a small fee around 1%, but please check with your bank before donating.
If you consider this charge too high, please consider using SEPA direct Debit or Bank Transfer if you can. Even with this charge, it is a lot cheaper than paying the higher processing fees of other payment services like PayPal which keep a lot more of the donation to themselves.
Your credit card statements or bank statements will contain a link that you can follow to cancel your donation at any time.
