Corporate Sponsors

Corporate Sponsors are for-profit companies who drive their business success using our open source projects. NumFOCUS Corporate Sponsors invest in the development and sustainability of the open source scientific data stack through their financial support of NumFOCUS. Many of our Corporate Sponsors also allocate employee paid time to development work on NumFOCUS open source projects.

Emerging Leader Corporate Sponsors

Emerging Leader Corporate Sponsors are either small but growing companies or established companies who are newly supporting open source scientific computing. Emerging Leader Corporate Sponsors invest in the development and sustainability of the open source scientific data stack through their financial support of NumFOCUS and/or by allocating employee paid time to development work on NumFOCUS open source projects.

Research Partnerships

Research Partnerships are available to labs, governments, and institutions that use and rely on our open source projects to conduct their research. NumFOCUS Research Partners advance the NumFOCUS mission through their financial support and by allocating employee paid time to development work on NumFOCUS open source projects.

Community Alliance

The NumFOCUS Community Alliance is a coalition of organizations who share our commitment to increasing collaboration, project sustainability, and diversity in the scientific computing community. Members of the Alliance are nonprofit organizations or community groups whose mission intersects with our own and reflects support for open source scientific computing. Community Alliance members have the opportunity for their events and activities to be cross-promoted by NumFOCUS in a reciprocal, supportive relationship.

While no financial commitment to NumFOCUS is required to join, we do ask that interested groups fill out a brief application form to tell us about your organization. Acceptance of new Community Alliance members will be made on a case-by-case basis by the NumFOCUS Board of Directors.
