These are frequently asked questions regarding the Project Sponsorship program.

What projects can participate in the progr?

All OSGeo projects are eligible to use the program. This includes projects in incubation and those that have graduated.

Does a project have to use the program?

No - participation in the program is at the discretion of a project's steering committee. It is not a requirement of joining OSGeo.

Who Solicits Project Sponsors?

Project sponsorships are primarily beneficial to the project being sponsored, so it is anticipated that members of the project community will be primarily responsible for soliciting project sponsorships. The fundraising committee of OSGeo will also be explaining the project sponsorship option to organizations it reaches out to, but will generally be encouraging Foundation Sponsorship.
