That is always difficult.

I personally prefer MIT.
Some organizations prefer to produce Apache-2, which also should fit here.
0BSD (https://spdx.org/licenses/0BSD.html) or less-than-3-clause BSDs should work too.

So, from https://spdx.org/licenses/, it should be an OSI-approved license that is not contagious.
