Redox OS relies on donations from our community to survive. These donations fund
the Redox OS Summer of Code and server costs that are critical to maintaining a
vibrant community. 2020 has been a good year for Redox OS, and I am excited to
see what 2021 has in store for us.
## Income
Our primary source of income is through Patreon, at
https://www.patreon.com/redox_os.
Over 100 patrons provided $12533.53 of income.
Our secondary source of income is through Paypal, at
https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/redoxos.
This source also includes LiberaPay donations, which can be found at
https://liberapay.com/redox_os.
Together, these provided $745.97 of income.
Lastly, the Bitcoin address

and the Ethereum address
0xa0589F36202c6dFFB0e3e0aCAEa5D62c0f5469ce
provided $72.31 and $16.35 of income, respectively.
Together, these sources provided $13368.16 of income, more than prior years.
## Expenses
Our primary expense, the Redox OS Summer of Code, was provided a larger budget
this year. Additionally, a new payment method was used to minimize fees. Two
students were provided $5000 each over the summer, with fees added the total
cost was $10049.48.
The secondary expense is the Amazon EC2 instance providing this website, a
Jenkins server, and the Discourse forums. This cost $1072.32 last year.
The third expense is the Gitlab server, which is running on DigitalOcean. This
server cost $1063.01 in 2020.
In total, expenses were $12184.81, also increasing over last year mainly due to
the increased Redox OS Summer of Code budget.
## Conclusion
Redox OS was provided increased funding in 2020. This increased funding allowed
us to expand the Redox OS Summer of Code budget, and fund all server costs. A
profit of $1183.35 will be rolled over to next year, to be added to the Redox
OS Summer of Code budget again. Every dollar received is put to use, and to
great effect. With your help, this project continues to be the most interesting
and promising one I have ever been involved in.
