Drupal Sponsorship by Organizations


This article was published in the print magazine Drupal Watchdog, Volume 7 Issue 1, 2017-03-25, on page 9, by Linux New Media. The magazine was distributed at DrupalCon Baltimore, 2017-04-24.

As with all successful open source projects, Drupal's sustainability and growth depends upon the participation of contributors — including web agencies, corporations, universities, and other organizations that build websites using Drupal and then share their work with the rest of the community. Such sponsorship is becoming increasingly visible and rewarded, and can confer various substantial benefits to businesses that are willing to make such an investment — one that may be as simple as asking your team's developers to prepare and submit custom modules to Drupal.org. Each contribution increases the long-term strength of the foundation for your business's website, helps to attract quality designers and developers to your team, and much more.
