Open source FUND

Time to give back to the community

Appwrite's Open Source fund is our way of saying Thank You to all the maintainers who work tirelessly to bring you some amazing open source software. We're setting aside $50,000 to share with open source projects in need of sponsors. Nominate your own project or share the news with your favourite OSS maintainers.

Our story

Why we ❤️ open source

Back in the day, Appwrite was a small open source project just like yours. There were times when we struggled to keep up with the operational costs while ensuring we continue to provide high quality software used by thousands. With continued support from the community, Appwrite has now grown to be a leader in the open source field. We understand firsthand, the hardships associated with building and maintaining a world class open source project and we want to try and help maintainers by giving them one less thing to worry about.
