Starchild Systems is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service company. They host the Quilt Forum on their infrastructure at no cost to us.
If you want to sponsor Quilt, here’s a summary of how to do it. For detailed information on our processes for accepting and handling sponsors, please see the Sponsorships RFC.
If you’re just an individual person wanting to support us and help cover our costs, the best way to do that is by donating on our OpenCollective Page.
In addition to Endorsed and Non-Endorsed sponsors, there are two types of sponsorship: Financial and Non-Financial. Financial Sponsorships are those that provide direct financial contributions to Quilt through our OpenCollective page, and non-financial sponsorships are those that provide tools or services to us at a discounted price. When offering us a sponsorship, please include whether it is a financial or non-financial sponsorship, as well as if you would like to be endorsed or not.
When deciding whether to accept a sponsorship, we look for sponsors that provide high-quality products at fair and competitive prices, market their products transparently and honestly, and do not discriminate against minorities, have a history of anti-consumer practices, or conduct business in a way that is unsustainable or especially harmful to the environment. For the full list of Sponsorship Guidelines, see the Sponsorships RFC.
A good sponsorship offer should include the following:
