Financial support

Financial support is obviously among the most significant ways to demonstrate your interest in the open-source project. You can fund SOFA either by becoming a SOFA Consortium member or by making a donation. Such a financial support directly impacts the engineering power dedicated to SOFA.

* Membership fees are given excluding VAT.
For non-European partners, French VAT must be applied whether partners are not subject to VAT in their country.

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.
