sam_bakki has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All

Like you Monks, I am also benefited a lot with Perl and so employer.
Recently I read the post http://blogs.perl.org/users/dan_wright/2014/07/p5cmf-needs-some-love.html in the perl weekly news letter.
I want to talk to my employer / company to see the posibility of donating to perl foundation through corporate funding. I understand that my employer needs to have invoice to spend any money. I am aware of the online donation http://www.perlfoundation.org/want_to_help but this seems to be for the individuals to donate.

Do you monks know, How other corporates donates to perl foundation? What are all the possibilities to officially donate to foundation for non US companies (We are Europian based company).
Is there any one in the foundation can clarify donation realated qustions?

Once I know the details, I will push my employer to make some donation to foundation.

Thank you.



Update: Thanks for the details. I am getting in touch with TPF treasurer.

Thanks & Regards,

      Dear moritz,
      Thanks for the info.
      I sent mail to TPF folks.

      My employer would be willing to donate to perl5 more than YAPC but I will keep YAPC option also. Thanks for pointing.

    In particular, at The Perl Foundation, Dan Wright is the current treasurer, and the one to talk to about donations. The website does have a Donate link as well.

    I'm sure TPF would be very happy to find a new sponsor. If you need Dan's email address just send me a /msg. Posting it publicly would probably inflict too much spam on him.
