FSFE Support Programmes

We do not encourage you or your company to register, or buy from any of the companies on this page. Please do not start using them only because you want to support FSFE. But if you are already using them or buying from them, here is a description how you can do this while supporting our work.


Please be aware of the controversies surrounding Amazon, especially regarding Amazon's position on software patents. Richard Stallman also keeps track of reasons why not to buy on amazon. Nevertheless we provide a userscript for various browser (see below). If this is installed, Amazon gives us around 5% provision for each sale. FSFE uses this money to work for Free Software, to oppose software patents in Europe and Digital Restriction Management.

Amazon's terms of use clarify that we have to provide this exact wording on our website:

FSFE e.V. is a participant in the Amazon Europe S.à.r.l. Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.(ca|com||de|fr).


There is a userscript available on GreasyMonkey (Git repository). By using it, you take part in all of the aforementioned programs.

It should work on most browsers, e.g. Firefox, Chromium/Chrome, Opera and Safari. You will find information how to prepare your browser in our repository or on Greasyfork.

Of course it's Free Software, for more information, see the Git repository.

Bookzilla / is a frontend made by the German based company for the Libri bookshop. You can order from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. If you are already buying online and use for this, you could switch to bookzilla. For each sold book on bookzilla 5% go to as a commission. Bookzilla donates 100% of the provision to us.

Donation Matching

Several companies offer donation matching programs, which means that when you donate to the FSFE they will also donate to us. Please check with your employer if they offer this, and inform us about the programs.


Some companies are using for the donation matching. If your employer does, you can login there, and then search for "Free Software Foundation Europe" to handle the donation matching. If you have any questions, you can contact their customer support.
