Donate to ISC

Internet Systems Consortium is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) entity

We do not have an endowment, and we are not funded by “the government.”

We employ full-time, professional software engineers to maintain the code that you can download for free.

We welcome sponsorships – if you are passionate about Internet security, or privacy, or want to see a new feature implemented, contact us about sponsorship at

  • You need viable, production-quality open source.
  • Open source lowers barriers for participation on the Internet for everyone, and removes the necessity to “reinvent the wheel” for new entrants.

Planned projects include:

  • BIND refactoring and new feature development, including 9.15
  • BIND maintenance releases on 9.11 & 9.14 trains
  • Kea DHCP feature release 1.6, focusing on retrieving Kea configuration from a separate database
  • Continued work on IETF standards

With your donation of $10 or more, you will receive an email from us acknowledging the gift and your name will be added to the list of donors on this page. For donations of $1000 or more, we will add a link to your website, if desired. However, we cannot guarantee any SEO benefits in return for your donation.

We appreciate all donations, but will not link/will remove links to any site we believe is harmful to visitors, offensive, or otherwise abusive.

If you pay taxes in the United States, your donation to ISC may be deductible from your Federal taxes.
