Support us

Donations are the quickest and easiest way to financially support the open-source initiative. Donations are given without return consideration and they significantly contribute to the adequate staffing required to fulfill our open-source missions. Since the SOFA Consortium is administratively hosted by the Inria Foundation, a non-profit organization, donations for SOFA are tax-deductible (66%) in France and in the US.
