Linux Lite is free and can best be described as a labour of love. I am very passionate about showing people how simple linux can be to use. Help us get the word out and inform people about linux operating systems.
The goal of this project is to work on it full time so that we can deliver to you a better operating system with each release. More time, more features, greater options.
Your contributions help fund:
- Main web server costs
- Domain renewal
- Repository hosting
- Hardware purchases
- Software licences
- Fees (PayPal, eBay, TradeMe)
- Time spent developing
- Paying other developers
People should have a choice when it comes to how they choose to support an operating system. If you use Linux Lite and want to contribute towards its success, please select from one of the options below.
Bank: Westpac New Zealand
Account: JRG Bezencon
Swift Code: WPACNZ2W

Patreon is a crowd-funding platform. It allows developers to obtain funding from people who use their software on a recurring basis. This funding campaign has three main objectives:
- Contribute towards keeping our online services up and running.
- Allow the lead developer to work on Linux Lite full-time. At the moment, Jerry holds down a full-time job as well as working on Linux Lite in any spare time he gets. As well as his full-time job, he currently spends 3 -5 hours a day working on Linux Lite.
- Support and help fund other free software and open source projects that Linux Lite relies on.
