Thanks for considering a donation!

We hope you decide it’s worth spending a couple dollars (or more) each month for such an awesome piece of software as ActivityWatch.

What’s in it for me?

Aside from ensuring the future development of ActivityWatch, you’ll get a little something in return which you can read about on our Patreon page.


We currently support the following donation methods:

Why do we need donations?

  • They help the sustainability of the project; every dollar improves the probability that the project will be actively developed for a long time.
  • It helps us attract developers to the project.
  • They serve as proof that the project is valuable to our users.

What is the money used for?

  • All expenses will be entirely transparent for community review.
  • They will not pay for the work of the current lead developer Erik.
  • Server costs of the forum and other infrastructure.
  • Bounties on issues.
  • Funding other open source projects that ActivityWatch depends on.
  • The maintainers reserve the right to spend donations however they think is best.
