Are my donations tax deductible?
Clojurists Together is a member project of the Software Freedom Conservancy. This means that we are able to accept 501(c)3 donations. While we can't provide members with country-specific tax advice, we're not aware of any non-US country that that recognizes donations to a US public charity as tax-deductible in their jurisdiction. If you have any questions, please get in touch or talk to your accountant.
When we receive a donation or sponsorship payment, we send a standard acknowledgment which includes information about Conservancy's status as a US 501(c)(3) charity.
Who are you?
Clojurists Together is run by a board made up of developers in the Clojure Community. There are annual board elections to elect board members. There are seven current board members.
How do members help influence project selections?
Every quarter before we select projects for a funding round, we send all our members a survey, asking for their feedback on what projects, tools, and areas of the Clojure ecosystem they think would benefit from being sponsored.
How can I upgrade or downgrade my membership?
Log in to your PayPal account, go to your Profile page, and click My Preapproved Payments. From there you can cancel your subscription. After you have cancelled, you can go through the signup process again at your new membership level. Send us a note if you run into trouble and we'll help sort it out.
Is this related to Clojure/Core?
Clojurists Together is run by Clojars, and is not associated with the fine folks at Cognitect, or the core Clojure development team.
What if I don't like how you're spending my money?
Clojurists Together takes feedback for every funding round on which projects and areas to focus on. If you're not happy with how Clojurists Together spends your money, you're free to cancel your membership at any time. We take transparency very seriously, and want you to have full confidence in how your money is being spent.
I can't commit to a monthly membership, can I make a one-off donation?
Absolutely, you can make a donation via PayPal or Credit Card here:
If PayPal/Credit Card doesn't work for you, then please get in touch, as there are other payment options we can use.
I can't use PayPal, do you have other payment options?
The only way we can currently setup recurring subscriptions is through PayPal. The Software Freedom Conservancy does have other options for one-off payments though. You can also make a one-off credit card payment through the link in the section above. If you'd prefer to use one of those options, we're happy to process your payment as an annual subscription. This helps us minimise the paperwork and admin time involved for everyone. In all cases, please get in touch with us and we'll work something out and make sure that your payment is marked for Clojurists Together and you get signed up for a subscription.
I still have questions?
No problem, get in contact and we'll try and answer your questions.
