We welcome donations to support our work! Ongoing organization expenses include our websites and domain names, equipment rental for the annual meeting, and so on. In addition, as soon as we have money available, we would like to hire a part-time communications and outreach coordinator to help us spread the word about open source software and OneBusAway to other transit agencies and beyond. There is also a long list of enhancements that we’ve love to make to our apps and systems as funds are available.
The Open Transit Software Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so that donations to OTSF in the USA are tax-deductible.
We will be setting up a way to take donations via credit cards in the near future. In the meantime, we invite you to mail a check to us at the following address:
Open Transit Software Foundation
PO Box 22254
Seattle Washington 98122-0254
You can also donate to our gift budget at the University of Washington (which is already set up for credit cards) — although funds we receive via UW have more restrictions on them. Donations via UW are tax-deductible as well.
