90% of donations to the @libreoffice projects are coming from individuals.
Companies unfortunately do not contribute that much in economical or material way on an #OpenSource project that is the major barrier between freedom of choice and a full monopoly by Microsoft in the office productivity market.

Organisations should realise that a strong LibreOffice helps in creating a healthy competition and lower also their costs.

So, please, contribute in any way you can to help yourself.

68% des contributions en code proviennent d'entreprises. C'est pas seulement de l'argent qu'il faut pour faire un logiciel.

The majority of that 68% comes from members of the ecosystem which pays specialised developers to fix bugs and write new features. They generally get money from TDF tenders and by selling their services.

95% of companies that could contribute with documentations, translations, some code, money or other things do not contribute back.
