+As a maintainer, you might want to accept donations for your work,
+especially if you pay for any of your own hosting/development
+infrastructure.  Following is some text you can adapt for your
+package's web site, @file{README}, or wherever you find it useful:
+We appreciate contributions of any size -- donations enable us to spend
+more time working on the project, and help cover our infrastructure
+If you'd like to make a small donation, please visit @var{url} and do
+it through PayPal.  Since our project isn't a tax-exempt organization,
+we can't offer you a tax deduction, but for all donations over
address@hidden, we'd be happy to recognize your contribution on
+If you can make a donation large enough to entirely fund a substantial
+change, such as $1000, then we could discuss with you what change we
+should do with your funds, and we could give you a certain amount of
+specific help in exchange.  Write to us about this at @var{address}.
+Thanks for your support!
