If your organization fincially contributes to an OSGeo event, community or
project you qualify to be cross listed as OSGeo sponsor.

Welcome to an exciting year of community building at OSGeo! Many of our
activities are only possible thanks to the support of our volunteers and
sponsors. If you are in position to finacially support our community,
events and activities in 2018 we would love to hear from you.

OSGeo sponsorship recognizes organizations that support us financially at
each level of our community from grass roots local chapter advocacy, hands
on project sprints, industry focused foundation initiatives, to outreach at
FOSS4G events.
