Donate to the OSL
Open Source is all about contributions. Countless numbers of developers are all giving of their time and talents to code, document, test, design, and deliver software so that the end user may benefit from it. The Open Source Lab is here to contribute resources to the community, allowing developers to focus on whay they do best rather than having to spend time worrying about system resources and hosting. To continue operating, we need your contributions as well. We can make good use of, and ask for the following contributions:


At the end of the day, there are bills to pay. We have costs to cover for bandwidth, facilities, and human resources (see our People page to meet our team of sysadmins!). A monetary contribution to the OSL helps us to not only continue in the same level of service as we have in the past, but to expand as more resources become available. This allows us to open up hosting and resources to more Open Source projects. Our financial contributions are handled by the Oregon State University Foundation. Click the button below to open the online donation form. Please specify your amount in the box marked "Other", where you will see "Open Source Lab" specified. You can also phone a contribution to (800) 354-7281 and specify that your gift is for the Open Source Lab in Information Services.


We have learned that no piece of hardware goes unused here in the lab. We work with hardware vendors who want to contribute to Open Source Software, matching their gear up with the projects that are in most need. In many cases we can take a server and virtualize it, meaning a handful of projects can all benefit from the same box. To speak with us about donating hardware and find out what we are in the most need of at this time, email support-at-osuosl-dot-org.

Time and Talents

Are you looking to jump into Open Source development? We have projects developed in-house that are always looking for talented developers to assist. Open Source development is an excellent way to build skills, and makes a great addition to your resume! To browse through the projects we are currently working on, click the "Projects" link.

Thank you for your contributions!
