Helping FOSS projects be more successful through clearly defined project data.


Donating money

ClearlyDefined is an incubator project and fiscal sponsoree of the Open Source Initiative (OSI). The OSI is a US charity (501(c)(3)) with tax ID/EIN is 91-2037395. Any money intended to support ClearyDefined’s work should be given to the OSI as a general donation. Those donations can be earmarked for ClearlyDefined and will be used to support its work.

Payments to the OSI can be made in a few different ways:


The preferred method of donation is via PayPal on OSI’s website at Fill out the form as appropriate and in the Targeted Donations section towards the bottom, put in “ClearlyDefined”.

Network for Good

You can also donate via Network for Good. Similar to the PayPal method above, fill out the form as appropriate and put “ClearlyDefined” in the Designation box at the lower left of the form.


Donating via Flattr is apparently possible but we are unable to figure out how to do it. If you do figure out how to donate that way and to target “ClearlyDefined” as the project to support, please drop us a mail at [email protected].


You can also mail a check to the OSI at the address below. Be sure to write “ClearlyDefined” in the “notes/memo” field or include a note stating that the donation should be directed to ClearlyDefined.

Wire transfer

If you would like to send a wire transfer, ACH, or represent a corporation that needs to have an invoice issued against a purchase order, please contact Phyllis Dobbs, Controller for OSI, at [email protected] and she’ll work with you to set up the payment.
