Why?

I am a big fan of Free/Libre and Open Source Software. As a developer I very much value that it allows me to freely use and if necessary modify software written by others. Since I benefit so much from work people have made available under an open source license it seems only fair that I do the same.

I want everyone to be able to use my software, not only those who can pay for it. That’s why all of the open source software I create is available free of charge.

However, open source developers still need to make a living. So if you use one of my projects and can afford it, please consider becoming a sponsor. My goal is to be able to work on these projects full-time.

For a list of most of my open source contributions check out cketti on GitHub.

How?

There are multiple options to financially support my open source development.

Liberapay

Liberapay is a recurring donations platform for free software projects. You can use a credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express), a Euro bank account (SEPA Direct Debit), or a PayPal account to donate money to me. While the goal of Liberapay is to facilitate recurring donations, by selecting “manual renewal” you can also make one-time donations.

GitHub Sponsors

This is a convenient way for users of the development platform GitHub to financially support me with recurring donations.

PayPal

If you don’t want to create a Liberapay account, you can give money using PayPal directly. Supports both one-time and monthly donations.

Bank transfer

For SEPA transfers use the following information:

IBAN: DE69 4306 0967 7017 5834 01

If you want to donate to the K-9 Mail project in particular, you can do so via K-9 Mail’s Liberapay page.
