We’ve been getting great feedback on our OpenLayers 3.0 fund raising
effort, and to help ease contributions from individuals and smaller companies we’ve just launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. We’re looking to raise at least $20,000 from users of OpenLayers, to complement larger contributions from big organizations who love OpenLayers.
There are a number of ‘perks’ you can receive for donating, including limited edition OpenLayers t-shirts, your name in the release notes, and participation in the final OpenLayers 3 sprint. If you’ve ever had your work helped by OpenLayers then now is the best possible time to give back.
And please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help attract larger organizational sponsors to OpenLayers. We’ve got a prospectus for organizations that give them ‘perks’ as well, like their logos prominently featured as supporters and even one year of commercial support on OpenLayers 3.0.
