Join as a corporate member
Since September 2013, the OSM Foundation admits corporate members as "associated members" of the organisation. Corporate memberships start at €500 per year. See Corporate Members for the list of organisations who have chosen to support us in this way so far.
Why should you join?
- Keep OpenStreetMap's servers running. OpenStreetMap is the world's biggest user-generated map, free for everyone to use. Our volunteer sysadmins rely on the OSM Foundation to provide the server hardware.
- Support our volunteer working groups. Our Working Groups keep OpenStreetMap safe from vandalism and legal threat, among other work.
- Show your support for OpenStreetMap. - Tell others that your organisation is a proud member of the OSM Foundation.
Corporate members may attend OSMF general meetings but they do not have a vote.
There are different membership levels, which should accommodate organizations and companies of any size. Your company or organization can become a Corporate Member for as little as €500 / year for ‘Supporter’ level, all the way up to €20,000 / year for ‘Platinum’ level. Each level has different benefits, as laid out below.
|Corporate Membership tier||Membership fee||Benefits|

There will be an option for adding specific information on the invoice (like a PO-number). More information about this process will be mentioned in the e-mail from the membership secretary.
