How can I contribute?
The League is the very first open-source font foundry, which means a lot of the costs and work involved are volunteer. We stay afloat thanks to contributions from our founders & partners, members, sponsors, and people just like you who want to help.
We've also got a pretty big audience of amazing fellow type nerds — who care not just about fonts & typograhy, but about learning design, about freelancing, about all manner of interesting & creative work.
If you're a solo human who loves what we do & wants to support us — we'd love to have you as a member. It's a small amount monthly, you get awesome perks that are improving all the time, and you can cancel/pause if you ever need to.
Contributing a small amount every month helps us the most, because costs recur every month, and having people to make great stuff for on a monthly basis keeps us motivated and excited to share.
We definitely accept one-time individual donations to help keep the servers running & the fonts sparkling & fresh. We use donations to pay for email costs, hosting costs, and sometimes to support work on our open-source or free educational materials.
If you're a company using our fonts for your business, and want to give back — this is a fantastic way to help keep the open-source community thriving. We're happy to send custom invoices/receipts for your records, if you need them!
- Secure & safe encrypted payment system
- Support open-source & the community
There's also a bunch of interesting ways to partner with companies who could offer something incredible & useful to our peeps — as long as you can offer something that our audience is going to love, we'd love to work together.
