Donating to TUG activities

Thank you very much for considering making a donation! You can

via PayPal; or on the form below, you can make a general donation to TUG, earmark a contribution for a specific TUG activity, or both. If you have any questions or suggestions about donating to TUG, or would like to make an in-kind donation, please contact the TUG office. Thanks to all our past donors.

Donations generally qualify for the income tax charitable deduction in the United States. TUG's tax ID number is 22-2868942. More details on TUG's tax-exempt charitable status. Some employers will match donations to nonprofits.

You can donate via the form below or via our development-specific donation page, which allows for donations to certain projects via European bank transfer. (Thanks to the Dutch TeX user group (NTG) for providing this alternative.)

If you shop at, another way to donate is to start at and select the “TeX Users Group” as the organization you wish to support (direct link). Amazon then donates a (tiny) fraction of your purchases to TUG, at no cost to you. Some non-US Amazon sites (at least and also have this program to benefit charities of your choice.

“General TUG contributions” can be used for any purpose, at TUG's discretion. This includes but is not limited to the specific project donations; for example, they can also help toward our overhead. Use of general donations is ultimately approved by the TUG board as part of the budget. In contrast, donations to the specific projects are 100% dedicated to those projects and never used for any other purpose. TUG takes no portion of project donations for overhead costs.

Of course donations of any kind are most welcome, but if you like, you can join TUG instead of (or in addition to) making a donation; TUG membership has some benefits.

Please enter amounts in US dollars (approximate currency conversions).
