How you Can Help

Thank you for your interest in supporting Devuan!


Please consider translating Devuan’s upgrade and install documentation into your native language. Translated pages could also be added to the Friends of Devuan wiki.

Monetary Donations

A continuous flow of income allows the project to be sustainable. Expenses range from IT to travel, hosting costs and remuneration of people working on Devuan. We believe “volunteer” has a different meaning than “free labor”. Time and talent spent on the project should be rewarded accordingly. Devuan is made of humans, and we intend them to stay alive!

If you can afford it and you’re committed to helping Devuan, please consider a recurring donation, as minimal as it may be: it contributes to the stability of the project and its capacity to plan in advance.

Donations can be made in EUR, USD, via bank transfer or PayPal.


You can show your support with Devuan-branded tee-shirts, stickers, and more. Have a look at our shop, these make a great conversation starter.

Media Sponsorship

Sponsor a Devuan Gathering

Corporate donors can sponsor specific events to support the community in exchange for exposure. We’re looking for partners promoting free software, responsible and sustainable businesses who share our vision for a free, inclusive society.

In-Kind Donations


There are several ways to help Devuan with bandwith:

Racked Servers

If you can provide a server in a data center, we can probably make good use of it. If you have space in your data center, we can also buy a server and rack it there.

Build Machines

We’re looking to expand our capacity to automatically build Devuan packages on different architectures, preferrably ARM devices and rare architectures. Hardware vendors are welcome to send sample machines for Devuan developers to work with.


If you have a place where a dozen people could work on Devuan for a few days in great conditions, you’re very welcome to invite for a documentation book sprint or a devuan gathering.

Face-to-face meetings are not only productive, they also nurture the community.
