Donate to PauseAI

We started PauseAI as a group of volunteers, who work on it in their free time. Since February 2024, PauseAI is a registered non-profit foundation . We do not yet have sufficient funds to hire people to work full-time on PauseAI, so we still run on volunteer work. With your financial support, we can professionalize and have a bigger impact.
