Participatory budgeting (PB) is a democratic process where citizens jointly decide on how to allocate public funds to indivisible projects . This paper focuses on PB processes where citizens may give additional money to projectsthey want to see funded . We introduce a formal framework for this kind of PB with donations . Our framework also allows for diversity constraints, meaning each project belongs to one or more types, and there are lower and upper bounds on the number of projects of the same type that can be funded . Wepropose three general classes of methods for aggregating the citizens’preferences in the presence of donations .
