Community Support Program is part of our efforts of giving back to the community.
Our team has deep roots from different FLOSS communities, and it’s not only in our DNA to work with and promote free open source software, but we also believe this movement to gradually changing the world. This is why we are committed to support as much as we can communities, organizations and non profits who have a focus on FLOSS, online privacy, freedom of expression, discrimination in accessing the net, open knowledge and the commons. Human Rights organizations which in critical times are fearing censorship, targeted attacks or need more resources to continue their work are encouraged to apply as well.
What does Community Support mean?
As you might already know, our team provides ready2use digital infrastructure entirely based on open source software and our main goal is to make the use of free software as easy as possible. We sometimes provide software customization for your needs and a small number of training hours so that you and your team can make the best of these platforms. We also offer friendly human support when you are facing difficulties. To find more about the full list of the platforms we are offering you can visit our Instances page. If you need support on an open source platform which is not listed there, we encourage you to contact us anyway and we can discuss further on how to support you.
How do we offer support to free open source initiatives in need of infra
At the moment, we are still a small team with significant third party costs and a boostraping approach and are still working hard to grow our business. As it is not possible for us to support as many organizations as we would like with the resources we have at the moment, we have established a partnership with our friends at FOSSHOST to help as many organizations as possible to establish digital infrastructure using open source platforms. Basically, for all the applicants that are eligible with the criteria mentioned here, FOSSHOST will offer the server space and we at Cloud68.co will manage the installation of one of our instances and will help you get onboard using them the soonest you are approved.
To apply, please make sure to fill the form below. After we receive your application we will decide with FOSSHOST if (a) you meet the eligibility criteria and (b) if we have a common decision to onboard you.
Not an open source initiative, but working on changing society?
Even if you are not an initiative or a community that contributes in open source tech, you can still apply to get open source digital infrastructure support for us. We promise to do our best to facilitate your request in any way we can as long as we are convinced that your community and your initiative has real impact. Keep in mind that it might take a while before we get back to you due to the growing engagement of our team with daily tasks of our partners.
