Community Sponsors

tl;dr: Requests development is currently funded by the Python community, and some wonderful organizations that utilize the software in their businesses.


Requests is one of the most heavily–utilized Python packages in the world.

It is used by major corporations worldwide for all tasks, both small and large — from writing one–off scripts to orchestrating millions of dollars of critical infrastructure.

It's even embedded within pip, that tool that you use to install packages and deploy with every day!

After losing our primary open source maintainer (who was sponsored by a company to work on Requests, and other projects, full–time), we are seeking community financial contributions towards the development of Requests 3.0.

Patron Sponsors

Linode — SSD Cloud Hosting & Linux Servers

Whether you’re just getting started or deploying a complex system, launching a Linode cloud server has never been easier. They offer the fastest hardware and network in the industry with scalable environments, and their 24x7 customer support team is always standing by to help with any questions.

This slot is reserved for ethical organizations willing to invest $10,000 or more in Requests per year.

By becoming a patron–level sponsor, your organization will receive the following benefits:

  • Prominent placement on the Requests documentation sidebar (~11,000 uniques / day).
  • Honorable mention here, with logo.
  • Peace of mind knowing that the infrastructure you rely on is being actively maintained.

Organizations that sign up will be listed in order — first come first serve!

Major Sponsors

The following organizations have significantly contributed towards Requests' sustainability:

Slack — Bring your team together

Slack was extremely kind to be the first organization to generously donate a large sum towards the 2018 Requests 3.0 fundraiser, surpassing our entire fundraising goal immediately! They are helping the world become a better place through connectiveness, and reducing the amount of email we all have to deal with on a daily basis.

P.S. They're hiring!

Twilio — Voice, SMS, and Video for Humans

Twilio was the second organization to generously donate a large sum towards the 2018 Requests 3.0 fundraiser, matching the donation of Slack! They are helping the world become a better place through interconnectivity, providing easy–to–use APIs, and empowering developers world-over to help humans communicate in meaningful and effictive ways.

Azure Cloud Developer Advocates

Azure was the third organization to generously donate a large sum towards the 2018 Requests 3.0 fundraiser, matching the donation of Twilio! Awesome group of generous folks :)

Niteo — Web Systems Development

Niteo was the fourth company to generously donate towards the 2018 Requests 3.0 fundraiser. Niteo is a company employing tech enthusiasts from all over the world who love to build great stuff.

Heroku

Heroku has allowed Kenneth Reitz to work on some open source projects during work hours, including Requests (but mostly Pipenv), from time–to–time, so they are listed here as an honorable mention.


If your organization is interested in becoming either a sponsor or a patron, please send us an email.

Individual Sponsors

Countless individuals, too many to list here, have individually contributed towards the sustainability of the Requests project over the years. Some, financially, others, with code. Contributions (from humans) of all kinds are greatly appreciated.
