Let's do awesome things! Get support for your projects and ideas from our budget

Want to organise a local (or online) LibreOffice event? Need some merchandise to boost your project or community? Then we can help you! The Document Foundation, the non-profit behind LibreOffice, is backed by contributions from ecosystem members and volunteers, as well as donations from end-users. This helps us to maintain TDF, but we can do a lot more too. And next year, we want to do a lot of projects again!

Each year, we set a budget that LibreOffice projects and communities can use for financial support. Some examples:

* Booking a location, and travel refunds for a local event (eg a translation sprint)
* Merchandise for community members, to use at events and conferences
* Infrastructure to start a new project (or help an existing one)

So if you have some ideas for a meetup, project or activity that could benefit from financial help, let us know! We can also assist you in other ways: our team members are there to help you, and enable you to do exciting and interesting things.

You don't need to work out all the technical details right now - the main thing is that we have an overview. To help us with planning, we kindly ask you to send your ideas by the end of November, as we try to prepare the 2022 annual budget during December.

You can send your proposal (with estimated costs) to budgets@documentfoundation.org and we'll take a look. Of course, can't guarantee that everything will be approved, but we'd love to hear your ideas!
