Become a Sponsor

OSCELOT provides the education community with the means of collaborating and delivering open source software projects in a highly visible context. OSCELOT projects are characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process and a desire to create high quality software that provides innovative solutions in educational technology. We consider ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather a community of developers and users working to better education through technology.

How are sponsorship funds used? 

OSCELOT is comprised of over 300 active global members, more than 100 projects, and countless contributors and users. We are responsible for maintaining the sites and software that make up our infrastructure. We also have the normal business operating expenses which go with any organization. These include:

  • Servers and hardware

  • Events, live hackathons, and developer days

  • Legal and accounting

  • General office expenses

  • Marketing and public relations

  • Administrative and secretarial duties (subcontracted as needed)

Your sponsorship allows OSCELOT to meet these expenses as well as expand our capability to maintain our leadership in the developer and Open Source communities. Funding will allow us to perform pro-active software and hardware procurement, enhance our community outreach, sponsor events such as Open Source Day and user group meetings, and perform non-code related improvements to projects such as better documentation and more comprehensive websites.
