Contributing to the Mozilla Foundation via AMO

8 02 2010

A few add-on authors have asked about directing contributions for add-ons to the Mozilla Foundation. You definitely can! If you’re an add-on author and interested in directing your contributions to the Mozilla Foundation, it’s simple and easy to do. Just set the PayPal e-mail to accountingATmozilla.org and contributions to your add-on will be directed to the Mozilla Foundation PayPal account.

You can add the following text to your add-on description so that contributors know where their money is going:

“All contributions for this add-on go to the Mozilla Foundation. Mozilla promotes openness, innovation and participation on the Internet. Learn more at www.mozilla.org/foundation.”

If you have any questions about the Foundation or our activities, please contact us at donationsATmozilla.org or ping us in the #foundation IRC channel. Thanks to Nick and Shawn for this idea!

I assume there’s already a bug filed to make this an available option in the UI for the next update of AMO? :)

Now that’s a great idea. :)

I really like this option. Unfortunately, the contribution message suggests that the contribution will go to the add-on developer and the add-on description is way below it (easy to miss). This feels like giving people wrong expectations. Is there already a bug to add individual text to the contribution message? At the very least Alexander’s suggestion should be implemented along with a different (not misleading) message for that case. Once that’s available I will happily redirect Adblock Plus contributions to Mozilla Foundation.

Very much agreed. This process could be a lot clearer. I’ll add this suggestion to the bug as well. Thanks!
