Community-led development "The Apache Way"
The Apache Software Foundation could not exist without the continued generous support from the community. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring the ASF, please read our sponsorship page.
ASF Targeted Sponsors provide the Foundation with contributions for specific activities or programs, such as donating cloud services, funding a project hackathon, providing legal services, offering a community member benefit, underwriting expenses for ApacheCon, or something entirely new. It's the Apache way of recognizing the sponsors that we rely on every day outside of and often in addition to funding our general operations.
The Apache Software Foundation receives many smaller donations from individuals. More details are available on our contribution page.
We would like to thank all of our individual donors for their support of our work, and for their willingness to contribute with only this as recognition for their generosity.
Until the third quarter of 2021, The ASF used a system of download mirrors to make Apache product releases conveniently available for free download around the world. The mirror system depended on generous contributions of resources and effort by organizations of many kinds (universities, non-profits, corporations and others), and The ASF could not have functioned as it has done without their support.
The ASF now uses a global content distribution network (CDN) to respond quickly and accurately to download requests from any part of the globe, at any time of day.
