+title: "ClojureWerkz, Clojure libraries: Donate"
+layout: article
+---
+
+## How to Donate
+
+### PayPal
+
+The easiest way to donate is with PayPal: `donate@clojurewerkz.org`.
+
+
+### Bitcoin
+
+Our Bitcoin wallet is `1PpoesdZ4XfP9AacFFFvseWEN8jfiChBmH`.
+
+
+## Why Donate
+
+Over years, we've developed and open sourced dozens of Clojure libraries. It took time to develop and document them
+(as a benchmark: [Elastisch documentation](http://clojureelasticsearch.info) took solidly more than 100 hours alone).
+Some of them are known to be best in their class in the Clojure community.
+
+In addition, we continue to maintain and improve them. This also takes time. By donating you help the core team
+justify spending all this time on open source software.
+
+
+## Get In Touch
+
+If you have any questions about donations, please contact us as `donate@clojurewerkz.org`.
+
+
+## FAQ
+
+### Why Only These Limited Options?
+
+Services such as GitTip do not work with banks in most countries. PayPal does not let residents
+of some countries accept payments. Stripe requires you to set up a company or foundation before
+you can accept card payments: this is something we are not yet ready to do.
+
+In the end, the combination of popularity of PayPal and ease of accepting donations in Bitcoin
+strike the right balance for us for now.
+
+
+### What Will The Money Go To?
+
+Maintaining our existing libraries and their docs, developing new ones.
+
+
+### How Much Should I Donate?
+
+It's up to you. We can give you a rule of thumb: if you use one or more of our libraries,
+chances are, it's saved you at least one hour of time. So consider donating the amount you charge
+for 1 hour.
+
+
+### Can I Fund Development of a New Clojure Library?
+
+Please contact us as `donate@clojurewerkz.org` and we will try to work something out. We have only
+**one requirement**: we are not based in North America and will not travel in order to develop the project.
