Thanks for the offer but we don’t accept donations.


I have used this pgm for several YEARS! I want to contribute …


If you’re a developer or designer and want to contribute code or icons etc. I’m sure the dev will appreciate it.

For monetary contributions you can read the dev’s official response above.


Any way to donate? Sumatra is one of my favorite programs, and I recommend it to all my college student friends. I would love to be able to support the development of this excellent software .


Thanks for the offer, @Sam_S, but regarding monetary contributions you can read the dev’s official response above.

IMO code (especially) and icon contributions would be great however since this project really needs support to fix the numerous open GitHub issues, add new features etc.


@greatwork @jspence @Sam_S

You may note from the new heading that there is now the opportunity to support / donate if you wish to.


I’d like to contribute monthly via Patreon for this great app, but I can only afford $1/month. Would there be any interest in creating an additional lower tier? I try to contribute something monthly to all the projects I use and it adds up.
