Defold Community Donations

The Defold Foundation is funding Defold development through community donations, corporate partners, partnership deals and support contracts. The funds received from donations are used for hiring developers to work on Defold, pay for hosting of services, purchase of hardware for testing and development and to pay for travel expenses when attending conferences.
