Hi,

I have found Scribus so valuable that I would like to make a monetary donation to its development.  Is this possible?

Open a Bug-Report...  ;D  ;) ;D
Have you first consulted the Manual? You can probably find the solution there.

A thing I don't understand is why can't Scribus developers initiate some kind of a crowd-funding project to secure additional means for development.

I mean, video editors for Linux have done it (Kdenlive got money for "re-factoring";  Openshot, as it seems, has nearly collected the money it needs for a major overhaul) and, mind you, neither of the two applications is as close as Scribus to being a reliable, professional-grade application that actually can replace a proprietary software. Maybe it's time to do something like that for Scribus? Surely, there are more people willing to support you with their money...

If a channel is made available, I'd definitely contribute, as well.

The problem with most development isn't money, it's time. And time is a bit harder to donate.

Also if I recall correct there are some issues regarding taxes etc that need to be solved.
