Apereo Membership

Apereo Foundation Membership Benefits and Dues

The  Apereo Foundation is a New Jersey non-stock, non-profit corporation, with members drawn from higher education on four continents. It’s mission? To help educational organizations deliver their mission, by developing and sustaining open source software. Open source software provides educational institutions with choices in a marketplace otherwise dominated by commercial proprietary vendors. It plays a major role in keeping the market honest, and fostering innovation.

By becoming an Apereo Foundation member, you –

  • Ensure support for software you rely on. Your membership dues work to ensure effective licensing, IPR management practices, infrastructure support, community coordination, outreach, and more.
  • Give your institution a say in the way Apereo is run, and how it sets priorities. Your institution has a vote in elections for the Apereo Foundation Board, which provides strategic leadership for the foundation.
  • Are able to access programs such as the Apereo Incubation Program. Have a software project you believe meets a higher education need? Apereo is the place to find partners and learn from others who've grown communities to sustain software.
  • Become part of a community of peers - a global network of educational institutions working together to address common issues and solve common problems - with many opportunities to participate.

Membership

From late 2015, Apereo is moving from an interim membership dues structure established at the merger of Jasig and Sakai, to a more sustainable and transparent model.

Apereo membership consists of two elements. The first is a  Core Foundation Subscription, paid by all members. This covers key services Apereo provides for all its software communities – technical infrastructure, legal and licensing support, community coordination, events and outreach. The second is a Supporting Subscription for specific Apereo Projects. For example, the Sakai Supporting Subscription pays for Sakai specific staff – the  Sakai Community Coordinator – together with Sakai specific infrastructure, travel and events.

Our hope is that the new dues structure improves transparency, and that members can see exactly what they are supporting financially. The dues levels set by the Apereo Board for 2017 for educational organizations are as follows.
