As you may have seen, GitHub made GitHub Sponsors in 2019 to fund Open Source developers for their work. Something I (and many other people) have been waiting for: GitHub now supports one-time and customizable donations for your sponsors!

If you do not know what GitHub Sponsors is, refer to this link.
If you aren't still participating in GitHub Sponsors, refer to this link.
