PayPal donation option will be available soon. 

How will your donation help?

As a not-for-profit open source project Payara Foundation has no shareholders and relies on support subscriptions, users’ donations and sponsorships. By donating to the Payara Foundation you will contribute to:

  • Continued Development of Payara Server as an open source software for the benefit of all its community
  • Shaping the Future and protecting Payara Server 
  • Driving Adoption & Growing Community by funding further development of Payara Server
  • Ensuring Open Source Development by helping us maintain Payara Server as an open source software, available for everyone and developed in the open to the highest quality standards 

Payara Server Support 

Using Payara Support is also a vital form of contributing and donating towards Payara Server & Payara Micro development. Support Customers' subscriptions fund development and engineering effort of the Payara Server open source project - we would not be able to make the continuous improvements to Payara Server without their help! So, if you are using Payara Server or Payara Micro in production or development, consider buying support services from Payara Services Ltd so that your subscription can fund further development of our open source software.
