Although FarsiTeX may be distributed freely, the production and maintenance of the system does require expenditure of reasonably large sums of money. There are many necessities that need substantial financing: examples are new or enhanced computing equipment.
This is why we are appealing to you for contributions to the fund. Any sum will be much appreciated; the amount need not be large as small contributions add up to very useful amounts. Contributions of suitable equipment and software will also be of great value. This appeal is both to you as an individual author and to you as a member of a group or as an employee: please encourage your department or your employer to contribute towards sustaining our work.

During this years of free software development for the sake of public, many have supported or helped the project. FarsiTeX has been mainly supported by the long-time contributions of:
SEO Company encourages firms on the Internet to support the open source community.
Programming and web development forum that encourages and supports the open source community.
We would like to see funded projects that make considerable use of FarsiTeX (e.g. conferences and research teams who use it to publish their work, and electronic research archives using it) include contributions to this fund in their budgets.
We are also asking commercial organisations to assess the benefits they gain from using, or distributing, a well-supported FarsiTeX and to make appropriate contributions to the fund in order that we can continue to maintain and improve the product. If you work for, or do business with, such an organisation, please bring to the attention of the relevant people the existence and needs of the project.
Also, if you have enough experience in FarsiTeX and related software, and you have some spare time to put on FarsiTeX, you may help us in the following ways:
