Make a Personal Donation

Used and loved PCL in your work? Received great support from the PCL community? One way to express your gratitude for the project is to give a donation! We will put your money to work by funding developer time, producing training materials, providing travel grants to students, and much more!

All donors will be listed on this page to express our gratitude. We have three levels of donors, each with their own cool perks!

Open Perception Supporter: $1 – $50






Every little bit counts! PCL has a very large, international community, so even small donations provided by a large number of community members can make many things possible! As a token of our appreciation, we will add your name to a special THANKYOU file distributed with each Point Cloud Library release.

Open Perception Friend: $51 – $100






Besides your name being engraved for eternity in PCL’s THANKYOU list, as a thank you for your donation you will also receive a “press pack” including stickers that you can display on your laptop or notebook so you can show your support and investment in PCL! In addition, every quarter we will be sending out PCL T-shirts that you can wear proudly and help stimulate discussion about your favorite perception library!

Open Perception Patron: $101 – sky’s the limit






If you are able, the larger the donation you can make, the more direct and substantial impact you can have on the development of PCL. To express our thanks, in addition to all of the goodies which are provided to the other donation levels, you will receive a gift pack including a t-shirt, a mug, and a sticker, plus you’ll get to name one of our PCL releases! We’ll also be thinking about other fun ways to repay you as well as special gifts every quarter.

We thank you in advance for your support!
