The mission of the Zig Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Zig programming language, to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Zig programmers, and to provide education and guidance to students, teaching the next generation of programmers to be competent, ethical, and to hold each other to high standards.
ZSF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Finances, meeting minutes, and other details are available to the public.
By donating to ZSF, you are funding development of the Zig Programming Language and its ecosystem, which in turn benefits the greater open source community in general. Zig community members have landed bug fixes in LLVM, Wine, QEMU, musl libc, GDB and others.
ZSF is a small organization and makes efficient use of monetary resources. The plan is to keep it that way, but we do want to turn our unpaid volunteers into paid maintainers to help merge pull requests and make swifter progress towards 1.0. The whole point of ZSF being non-profit is to benefit people. We’re trying to get open source maintainers paid for their time.
The easiest way to support us is to donate via GitHub Sponsors.
Here’s useful information to donate through means other than GitHub Sponsors. Make sure to check your local law to see if you can deduct donations from your taxes.
