4.1

Approach for “About”

Joint proposal:

The OpenStreetMap Foundation is a UK-registered not-for-profit organization that supports the OpenStreetMap Project. The OpenStreetMap Project is the worldwide mapping effort that includes more than 320,000 volunteer members around the globe.

The foundation consists of members[link to members page] from around the world who elect its board[link to board page] of directors.

Much of the foundation’s extensive work is done in the background, yet is critical to the ongoing functioning and growth of the OpenStreetMap Project.

The foundation supports the project with several key functions:

  • As a UK-registered limited company, the foundation acts as a legal entity for the OpenStreetMap Project.
  • The foundation is the custodian for the computer servers and services necessary to host the OpenStreetMap project.
  • Provides a vehicle for fund-raising to support the project. The foundation can accept donations for the OpenStreetMap Project and allocate those donations to OpenStreetMap Project activities.
