From OpenStreetMap Foundation

For Corporate Membership, see separate page.

Go to our website to join the Foundation!

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.
  • Influence the future direction of the project. Vote in the annual OSM Foundation elections for the board that steers the project.
  • Support our volunteer working groups. Our Working Groups keep OpenStreetMap safe from vandalism and legal threat, resolve licensing issues, organise conferences, keep our hardware and software up to date, any many other things.
  • Enjoy discounts to OSM events. The annual State of the Map conference offers significantly cheaper prices for OSM Foundation members.
  • Show your support for OpenStreetMap.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Foundation.
