Esquema general del programa de patrocini

Organizations or individuals interested in sponsoring the QGIS project should contact the QGIS treasurer, Andreas Neumann (, with questions, requests for sponsorship invoices or to make arrangements.

QGIS is an entirely Open Source project. QGIS development is carried out largely by a group of volunteers, that in time have built up a large, valuable and useful code base, free to use and improve for everybody. As a result, you have free access to the source code and binaries that we provide on our web site. As a result of this volunteer approach, a number of tasks, less interesting or important for the developers, are sometimes left behind. In addition, promoting QGIS requires our participation at congresses and conferences and the production of information material, sometimes very expensive for volunteer developers.

Meanwhile, many organizations have made an investment in using QGIS as part of their operations, but have not had a way to directly contribute to the success and long-term health of the project.

We would like to extend our activities and improve the quality of QGIS. Your financial contribution will support the maintenance, improvement, and promotion of QGIS. Sponsorship is not a way for individuals to control the development of the project, but rather a way of ensuring the longevity and overall health of the project.

Amb les vostres donacions nosaltres podrem:

  • fund developer meetings, starting from that in Vienna, autumn 2009. Users donations contributed effectively to the great success of the meetings, allowing us to fund travel and accommodation costs of key developers
  • support pre-release bugfixing, in order to improve the reliability of each new QGIS version.

Com podeu recolçar el desenvolupament de QGIS

Hi ha dues classes de contribucions monetàries previstes:

  • sponsorships: a sponsorship is an annual commitment of funds to the project.
  • donacions: una donació és una contribució financera puntual al projecte QGIS.


Sponsors can sponsor QGIS for any amount of money of at least 500 €/700 US$. Sponsorships last one year, after which they may be continued with a new payment, or allowed to lapse. At or above the following levels a sponsor will be designated as being one of the following class:

euros sponsorship level
27,000+ Platinum Sponsor
9,000+ Gold Sponsor
3,000+ Silver Sponsor
500+ Patrocinador bronze


Donations can be of any amount, via Paypal or through our bank account (information available at Donations page). Even a small donation can make a difference and help to reach important project goals!

Si ens voleu fer una donació important, us recomanem fer una transferència al compte bancari en comptes de via PayPal.

Les donacions a QGIS són deduïbles a diferents països. Adreceu-vos a la vostra oficina fiscal local per obtenir més detalls.

Quin és el vostre benefici en patrocinar el desenvolupament de QGIS?

  • Garanteix la salut i la sostenibilitat del projecte QGIS.
  • Tots els patrocinadors es llistaran a la pàgina de patrocinadors del projecte, ordenats segons la classe de contribució (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze) amb un enllaç a sota vers el patrocinador..
  • Els patrocinadors Platinum tindran el seu logo situat al bàner rotatiu de la pàgina frontal de

Com fem ús del suport econòmic?

The sponsorship funds will be spent to directly improve the code base of the project, to fund tasks that generally receive less attention from developers, and to fund work on peripheral project tasks so that core contributors can focus efforts on QGIS improvements. As an example, we would like to fund the following project activities:

  • finança desenvolupadors per treballar en aspectes específics de QGIS, incloent la implementació de noves característiques i la correcció d’errors
  • two QGIS Developer Meeting per year, where we can meet in person and brainstorm, fix bugs and hold a week of intensive QGIS development work. Most QGIS developers will happily donate their time to such events, but we are looking for sponsors to cover travel, accommodation and subsistence costs for these events
  • attendance to other conferences. There are several high profile conferences held each year (such as the, and we would like to be able to fund QGIS team members to represent QGIS at important conferences, to promote it among users and raise interest and solicit code contributions from other developers

El repartiment de les aportacions dels patrocinadors les farà el Comitè de guia del projecte QGIS


Ens sap greu no poder acceptar un finançament amb una finalitat determinada, donat que porta moltes complicacions administratives. Si esteu interessats en finançar el desenvolupament d’aspectes concrets de QGIS, us encoratgem a proporcionar recursos humans addicionals per al projecte, per exemple, contractant un desenvolupador, o participant en la nostra iniciativa de correcció d’errors.


Acceptance of sponsorship offers is at the discretion of the QGIS PSC. We reserve the right to decline offers of sponsorship if the sponsoring organisation or party seems to be at odds with the ethos of our project. For example offers from marketing companies that have nothing to do with GIS / spatial services, or offers where we have reason to believe the presence of the sponsors logo and marketing materials on our site and other materials will degrade the experience of our users will be declined.
