Lunch Presentation | Apache 101: Sponsoring the ASF at the Corporate and Individual Level
As an independent, non-profit organization, The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) does not receive government funding. We rely each year on the generous support from corporations, foundations, and private individuals to help offset day-to-day operating expenses such as bandwidth and connectivity, servers and hardware, legal and accounting services, marketing and public relations, general office expenditures, and support staff. Through the ASF Sponsorship Program, we can bolster continued growth across the ASF's 59 Top-Level Projects, 24 projects in the Apache Incubator, 20 initiatives in Apache Labs, community relations activities, and more. This session will provide participants with an overview of the ASF Sponsorship Program, the best methods for an organization or individual to support The ASF, and how you can get involved by "giving back" to one of the most compelling communities in Open Source.
