Support Us

Thank You! Many thanks to the Minnesota State University Moorhead CS department for a generous donation to keep Runestone development active and all of these resources free. Please consider having your own school or department do likewise.

This project is Open Source, but it does take time and resources. Especially as our popularity has grown we have server costs. We were also able to make great progress during the Summer of 2013 thanks to a generous grant from ACM-SIGCSE that supported one of our undergraduate students. It would be great if we could have a student working on this all the time.

If these books have helped you, if you liked them, please consider making a small donation.
