Notes:

  • We have reached out (2024) to the projects mailing list.
  • Board decided to not assign a default budget this year.
  • Board decided that the maximum amount per project this year cannot be more than $2,500 USD.
  • This is a budget, representing planned spending in 2024 - actual balance available to each PSC (from fundraising, donations and sponsorship) may be considered when planning.
  • If a project did not respond (or runs into an unforeseen expense) please contact the board throughout the year as budgets can be amended

Community Projects

Community projects act through the board as they do not have a project officer. Board approved $300 for each project (see Community Projects Initiative above)

Some guidance is offered by individual projects below.

Please note that this table records budget requests, not approved budgets.

  • Community Projects can ask the Board for spending approval (since they do not have a Project Officer) from the approved Community Projects budget.
  • Projects that have been accepted into the incubation program can ask the Incubation Committee for assistance to work on incubation (such requests are included in the incubation committee budget not here).

Events

Community Events

We have set aside a budget for community events in 2024:

  • Supporting community building events is distinct from the development focused code-sprints below
  • We are inviting community members to contact us about events (rather than try and adjust their event to fit into our code sprint guidelines)
  • OSGeo is is focused on our outreach goals as an organization as such our primary contribution to events is free software and enthusiasm rather than finical, we use funding to enable our members rather than for sponsorship and visibility.
  • Please note our financial guidance document

Code Sprints

We have asked project teams for guidance to help set our code sprint budget:

  • Please note our financial guidance document ask for event details, budget and fundraising on your part.
  • Our priority is to share the risk with organizers allowing access to funds early to book facilities as required
  • Code sprint budget is structured carry funds from one event to the next allowing us to hold more code-sprints with a smaller annual budget.
