Donating to Unicode

This page is for regular donations. If you are interested in adopting a character, please go to Adopt-A-Character.

The Unicode Consortium is dedicated to the goal that all the world's languages can be used on computers everywhere, from mobile phones to supercomputers.

The Consortium is a non-profit organization, funded by membership fees and donations from individuals, corporations, and other organizations. Your donations help support the vital work of the Consortium, making modern software and computing systems support the widest range of human languages. The Consortium will use your donation to improve language support and to preserve digital heritage. For more details, see How Donations are Used. In addition to making a donation, you may also want to join the Unicode Consortium.

The Consortium has 501(c)(3) tax status, and donations are tax deductible in the United States to the extent allowed by law.
