If you haven't already, have a look at Ardour's subscription page

This may be a viable answer. At one time, I was a subscriber, contributing $4.00US per month via automated paypal withdrawl. $4.00/mo is pretty painless when you lump it in with your other business expenses. I'd be willing to do that or a little more with LilyPond, since I use it more (often, for client work) than I use Ardour at the moment, if the option was available.

Although Ardour's appeal is arguably broader (and perhaps, more commercially oriented) than LilyPond's, just in terms of prospective users, I think LilyPond has a dedicated base of users who would be glad to contribute resources in a concrete and structured way. It might be worth considering.

I thought one could order "pieces of improvment" (it's been a long time since I read something on it...). The idea is : I pay for my personnel need, and the improvment is put back in the community. This question strikes me because I've just beginning to set up shop as an editor, and I've planned to pay back part of my (future ;-) ) benefits to Lilypond.

As for last point of Valentin's respose, such models must already exist : for instance, the Ubuntu project is worldwide, but the French community is able to receive money on his own (

Any idea ?

Best regards

(I wouldn't surely be the ideal person for founding a lilypond
users group), I am willing to spend a fee, say $50 a year, for
supporting the lilypond development. If there are 99 people more
(and I think there are a lot more!), we would have $5000 to pay
someone for improving lilypond.

As I mentioned in the other thread, there are plans to build such an
organization in France, from scratch (another possibility would be to
revive the (Netherlands-based?) LilyPond foundation, but we'd need
more information about it).

The main obstacle, of course, being the international essence of the
project, whereas non-profit organisations, bank accounts, etc. are
usually conceived in a nation-centric perspective.
