CodeFund Sponsorships FAQ
What is CodeFund Sponsorships?
CodeFund Sponsorships is a way to provide funding to open source projects and maintainers. One of the big misconceptions around open source funding is that funding should come from within the community (such as Patreon, Open Collective, and even GitHub Sponsors).
We takes a different approach to the problem. We provide direct sponsorships to GitHub projects and maintainers from companies that wish to share their products and services to the developer ecosystem. The sponsor will be able to track the results of those sponsorships similar to how they do with other marketing efforts. The sponsor will not only fulfill their altruistic desires to support those projects they love, but will also see a return on this investment similar to that found in advertising. This formula encourages more spending which is good for the community.
