Informations financières

Official information is available on the foundation website


Income includes personal financial donations, corporate sponsorship, donations of hardware and bandwidth, foundation membership fees, conference registration fees commission. There is also income from retail affiliation schemes such as Storage Depot, Amazon. Sponsors have included MultiMap, Google, Yahoo, Cloud Made, ITO World. In reality donations from contributors will continue to be needed. The foundation may also be pursuing other Fund Raising Ideas

Income in the 11 months to Aug 30th 2008 was £17,000 and expenditure was £14,000. The main income was from sponsors of the State of the Map conference and registration fees (more)

The foundation intend to publish management accounts on a quarterly basis.

In addition to direct income to the foundation, Multimap has funded Steve Coast directly to spend some of his time working on the project (when?).Digital Pioneers provided funding for mapping parties in the Netherlands which went directly to Stichting Vrijschrift, a Dutch non-profit organisation (when?).


The membership was polled about how the Foundation's income should be spent and we received a mandate to spend 60% of income on hardware, 20% on promotion and 20% on legal matters. Currently, the Foundation's expenditure is mainly on server hardware, although some is spent on activities that promote the project (typically, travel expenses for speaking engagements). So far there have been no reasonable opportunities to spend any funds on legal issues.

Statuts de l'association

The Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association for the OpenStreetMap Foundation are available from the Foundation website.

The foundation accepted a 1st revision of the OSMF Articles of Association at the 2013 AGM.

The foundation is currently discussing a 2nd revision of the OSMF Articles of Association.


This is a place for petitions and proposals from OSM contributors for consideration by the Foundation board. Proposals can be raised on this page in this section and should then be discussed and refined before being voted on (again on this page). The Foundation board is not required to act on the vote, but it may influence it's decisions and priorities.

Adhésion automatique à la Fondation OSM pour les utilisateurs établis


It has been proposed that membership of the foundation should automatically be given to 'established' OSM contributors[2]. The board have indicated that they would like to know the opinion of the community[3]. A definition of 'established' would need to be devised, however it might be something like 'Have contributed at least X manual change-sets in total, and at least Y manual change-set in each of the past M months and at least T change-sets in total'. If should be noted that the concept of 'established' users may also be useful when countering vandalism.

This proposal is still in draft form. Please feel free to adjust it or comment below.

Please indicate if you support this proposal ('I approve') or don't ('I disagree') below. I suggest all contributors should be eligible to vote, not just foundation members.


Please add (and sign) any comments and add links to related discussions on any talk lists on the subject.
