  • community engagement
  • marketing
  • service fees (web hosting and other service partnerships e.g. with ORCID, OSF, …)
  • traveling and presenting at conferences – incl. related expenses for Visa and accommodation
  • partnership building

All financial contributions we receive will be spent to one or more of the above-mentioned purposes. To discuss what exactly your given amount shall contribute to please contact us at support@africarxiv.org.

Please note: We are not (yet) registered as an institution but work remotely as a team with no dedicated office space. Therefore, we currently cannot issue donation receipts.
