Update 2016-11: The Corporate Membership tiers have been finalised and announced. The new schema is also described on the OSMF wiki.

The OpenStreetMap Foundation currently has a one tiered corporate membership model. We are considering creating a tiered structure to allow the Foundation to fundraise more money from corporate members as well as provide more services to those interested. Below is the draft structure for a model with such tiers.

The Foundation is interested in feedback as to if these benefits are of interest. Some of the funds raised through these tiers would be used to pay for those services (e.g. legal counsel and a OSM Business Workshop).

Corporate Membership Level Cost Benefits
Bronze 1,000 GBP
  • Attend OSMF general meetings
  • Name and logo on OSMF website
  • Show support of the OSMF
Silver 2,500 GBP
  • Same benefits as lower levels
  • Yearly call with board member
  • Early offer for SotM sponsorships
  • 1 free ticket to yearly business workshop
Gold 7,500 GBP
  • Same benefits as lower levels
  • Twice yearly call with OSMF board member
  • Early offer for SotM sponsorships
  • Legal access to OSMF General Counsel (needs to be discussed further)
  • 2 free tickets to yearly business conference
Platinum 15,000 GBP
  • Same benefits as lower levels
  • Quarterly call with OSMF board member
  • First offer for SotM sponsorships
  • Legal access to OSMF General Counsel (needs to be discussed further)
  • 4 free tickets to yearly business conference

Some of these benefits are based on there being a sufficient number of corporate members.

  • Business workshop: Contingent on having at least 10 Silver or higher business members.
  • OSMF General Legal Counsel: Contingent on having at least 5 Gold or high business members
