First of all, thank you for considering helping out, we really appreciate that!

PaperMC has various recurring expenses, mostly related to infrastructure. Paper uses Open Collective via the Open Source Collective fiscal host to manage expenses. Open Collective allows us to be extremely transparent, so you can always see how your donations are used. You can read more about financially supporting PaperMC on our website.

Special Thanks To:


YourKit, makers of the outstanding java profiler, support open source projects of all kinds with their full featured Java and .NET application profilers. We thank them for granting Paper an OSS license so that we can make our software the best it can be.

JetBrains, creators of the IntelliJ IDEA, supports Paper with one of their Open Source Licenses. IntelliJ IDEA is the recommended IDE for working with Paper, and most of the Paper team uses it.
