X Developer Conference Sponsorship Levels

Principles

X.org wishes to acknowledge and encourage donations from sponsors. This policy establishes a set of funding levels with given rewards.

The primary use for the conference donations will be travel sponsorships, to make sure relevant people can actually attend XDC. Funds can also be used for conference amenities like coffee breaks or breakfast. In the past the foundation also paid for social events, but found a somewhat ineffective use of funds. Leftover funds will be directed to the foundations general fund for all community support activities the X.org Foundation covers.

To recognize all the work that goes into organizing an XDC the hosts and organizers will get the Gold level for free, and the Platinum level at a steep discount.
