Two companies, Stripe and Facebook, have pledged an annual donation of $US100,000 to aid in the development of GNU Privacy Guard, the encryption software that has been created by a single German developer.

Stripe, which provides a way for individuals and businesses to accept payments over the internet, made the announcement on Twitter on behalf of itself and Facebook.

The Linux Foundation’s Core Infrastructure Initiative made a one-time donation of $US60,000. Other donations by individuals have also come in.
