Convincing 'the powers that be' in companies to sustainably support open source is not easy. We acknowledge that there are many heroes inside companies who are fighting that, and we want to support them. This is an open toolkit for sustainers making the case for their companies to support their open source stack.
This is an email that Vincent Voyer and Josh Dzielak from Algolia used to start a conversation internally about supporting Open Source. They kindly agreed to share it. <3
Please keep adding them <3

Depends on your budget. We're around $10k/y, and we pay out ~5-10% of avail. budget for each large contribution, and small token payments for fixed issues. Federated/open ownership of the books is why we are happy with @opencollect.— Goose (@RickCasey) December 20, 2017
