Dear OSGeo project members,

Over the previous years, OSGeo has been proud to support a growing number of project events, such as code sprints, developer meetings, and user conferences.

OSGeo is reaching out to all committees, including project steering committees, to help plan our budget for 2019.

This year, the board is discussing about assigning a starting budget of 2000$ to all graduated projects who have reported to the board the last 12 months (see https://git.osgeo.org/gitea/osgeo/todo/issues/11).

For projects with more of a plan (to pursue a specific goal) projects are welcome to send a more detailed request for approval (e.g. https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/GvSIG_Budget_2019)

A good idea is to focus on OSGeo participation, for example attending the AGM or OSGeo code sprint. Also keep in mind OSGeo goals as an organization, (e.g. interoperability goal: CITE compliance or participation developing new standards)

We would like to ask you to help us with budget proposals to assist your project. This will help us set aside a realistic amount of funding.

Please add your project info to the budget draft at:


ideally by January 14 ahead of our January board meeting.

When making a budget request please keep in mind the vision and goals of our foundation, along with any obligations you wish to meet.

Thank you and best wishes,

On behalf of OSGeo Board,
