Sponsors of EEA Community Projects provide the strategic vision, governance, technical guidance and funding to ensure that the work succeeds. Sponsors have the option to serve on the Projects Governing Board, where they will approve work produced by the community as well as proposals for new open source projects. Sponsorship dues are reasonable and scale based on organization size and type, making it easy for stakeholders to support the work. To learn more about becoming a Sponsor or joining the Projects Governing Board, visit here or email the EEA Community Projects administrator.

In addition to the Projects Governing Board, EEA Community Projects are guided by Technical Steering Committees, where membership is based on merit and not associated with sponsorship. The Technical Steering Committees (TSCs) are here mainly to ensure the smooth running of the maintainer project team and to be accountable to the EEA Community Projects Governing Board, and to the community at large.
