GDAL is a truly collaborative effort, with many diverse organizations contributing resources to its success. The following organizations take an extra step, providing unrestricted funding every year to maintain and improve the health of the project:

The GDAL Project is hosted by OSGeo, and a fiscally sponsored project of NumFOCUS, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the open-source scientific computing community. If you like GDAL and want to support our mission, please consider making a donation to support our efforts.

NumFOCUS is 501(c)(3) non-profit charity in the United States; as such, donations to NumFOCUS are tax-deductible as allowed by law. As with any donation, you should consult with your personal tax adviser or the IRS about your particular tax situation.


If your organization benefits from GDAL we recommend joining the group of sponsors above to "pay it forward" and ensure the project has the resources to stay healthy and grow.
