The GeoServer project steering committee seeks an annual budget used to fund maintenance activities, code sprints, and research and development that is beyond the reach of an individual contributor. We will also announce specific activities throughout the year, being sure to thank sponsors when describing functionality in release notes and presentations.

The GeoServer project would like to ask for your financial assistance at this time.

As with any open source activity the hands-on "in-kind" participation shown during code-sprints and ongoing commitment of our core-contributors exceed any financial contribution.

Sponsorship and associated recognition is an opportunity for the team to thank those who can contribute financially.

2022 sponsors:

Sponsor via Open Source Geospatial Foundation

Financial contributions for the project are managed by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation as described below. Your financial support accumulates towards your OSGeo sponsorship level.

Sponsorship via Invoice

Sponsorship via invoice:

  1. To participate please email treasurer@osgeo.org to express your interest.

  2. For inclusion on the OSGeo sponsorship page also include your company logo.

  3. Example email sponsoring GeoServer:

    Treasurer:

    We would like to sponsor the GeoServer Project, as a member of the GeoServer community we recognize the value in supporting open source.
