Why Donate?

Funding Mission:

To help open source AEC projects consolidate their efforts into more integrated, common solutions.

 We prioritize funding projects that…

  • Avoid duplication of effort
    • Those projects that integrate their code base with existing projects instead of creating their own separate, but similar, solution.
  • Support interoperability
    • Those projects that support, extend and/or create open exchange standards between separate software.
  • Have a broad and distributed contributor base
  • Make a measurable contribution to the industry

We use this Open Collective site to raise funds for the projects we support. The diagram below gives a good idea of the types of projects and priorities the steering committee have outlined for 2022/2023.
