The impact individual funding can make on open source maintenance

Published on

For the past three months, Richard Sheppard has been a financial contributor to ContribKanban on OpenCollective. I'm extremely grateful for his decision to put his money towards my project every month. $5 a month may not seem like much, but the impact is greater than its monetary value. It's a reminder. A reminder that someone finds value in a project I maintain in my free time and has been a pet project for years. 

It's a project which could always use some feature development, but usually more maintenance. The monthly contribution doesn't exactly cover labor, but it does keep the project maintained and up to date.

I also want to mention those who have sponsored me in general on GitHub Sponsors.

 Thank you Gábor HojtsyGuillaume Baudoin, and Vijay Mani for sponsoring on GitHub Sponsors. This means a lot and helps fund the development of ContribKanban, my CLI, and PHPStan Drupal.

Overall, this funding covers less than an hour of development time. But, it does cover coffee for a month, and that is fine by me 🥳.
