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 organisation 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.
