Hi,

You will find a brief reference to the different licensing models at
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/faq/introduction.html#FREEBSD-GOALS and the
surrounding text.

If you are evaluating a donation to FreeBSD, you may want to consider
the hardware list on http://www.freebsd.org/donations/wantlist.html for
examples of useful non-financial support.

Financial donations are handled by the FreeBSD Foundation at
http://www.freebsdfoundation.org

Rob.
