We Need Your HelpEvery contribution helps!
First of all, thank you! Amethyst is made up of all volunteers; your support means a lot to us. All donations go to forwarding the mission of the Amethyst Foundation; creating a game engine that is fast, reliable, open-source, and free. Here are some ways we use donations:
- Infrastructure and hosting costs
- Purchasing merchandise for events
- Travel costs to relevant events
- Creation of assets (art, code, design, etc) by an outside contractor if needed
- Hiring part-time or full-time developers to work on the engine
Important Tax Info
Amethyst is a pending 501(c)(3) non-profit. This means we have filed all needed paperwork with the IRS, and are awaiting final approval. This process can take between 3 to 6 months. Until a final determination is made, the IRS allows us to act as a full 501(c)(3). We do not anticipate any issues. More information can be found on the IRS site.
The important thing for you to know is that if the final determination does not grant us 501(c)(3) status, your donation may not be tax-deductible. Should we not be granted this status, we will inform all donors via e-mail.
