and I have read it in different forums. But without clear answer.

It is possible to buy clothings/wearables
http://shop.opensuse.org/ and in germany you can buy openSUSE as
box http://www.edv-buchversand.de/suse/ There they write on its
webside and on the box: "Open Source Press supports the community:
From every sold box goes a donation to the free
openSUSE-project!". But how much is the donation, when anybody buys
a box for 49.95 Euro? There isn't mentioned, how many Euros going
to openSUSE.

Would it help more to buy a SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop
https://www.suse.com/products/desktop/how-to-buy/ instead of an
openSUSE box? Goes then more money to the development of openSUSE?
The sad thing would be, that SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop is GNOME
based. And I prefer KDE.

Or is it possible to donate to openSUSE direct?

No and yes, but primarily no.

The only way we have currently to accept donations is to take cash
donations at oSC. This money flow directly to the organization of the
event on the spot.


A lot of OpenSource-projects have that possibility.

There existing plans, to create a openSUSE-foundation
https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Foundation but the last side update
is from 2011
https://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=Portal:Foundation&action=history

The

idea of a foundation with he name openSUSE in it has been tabled.
This has many issues.

HTH,
Robert
