GitHub Sponsors available in 30 new regions, including Indonesia
GitHub Sponsors expands globally with 30 newly supported regions, bringing the total to 68
Three years ago, we launched GitHub Sponsors so that open source developers and organizations could receive financial support for the important work they do every day. Over these three years, we’ve been working hard to help connect our open source creators with potential financial sponsors in as many markets as possible. Today, we are very excited to announce that GitHub Sponsors is now available in 30 more regions around the world bringing us to a total of 68!
We now officially support maintainers joining GitHub Sponsors from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Gambia, Gibraltar, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Israel, Kenya, Liechtenstein, Morocco, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Uruguay.
No more waitlist (hello to the 6,400 people that were on the waitlist to join)! Anyone in these regions can sign up right away if you have a bank account in one of the aforementioned countries!
These 30 new regions are filled with thriving communities of open source creators and we are excited to further support the incredible developer growth that we see. In fact, the number of combined developers on GitHub in the newly launched 30 countries has grown by 39% in the last year!
Now that GitHub Sponsors is available for more countries around the world, developers can create GitHub Sponsors profiles and start receiving financial support for their work. Also, whether you’re just joining Sponsors now, or are eager to enhance your profile, I recommend checking out this blog from @blackgirlbytes to learn more about how to create a great GitHub Sponsors profile.
Discovering maintainers you can sponsor
We’ve also improved the user experience to make finding and supporting your dependencies even easier. The GitHub Sponsors Explore tool shows you the projects and maintainers you depend on and can sponsor—whether it’s through GitHub Sponsors or another platform they’re using.
GitHub is the developer company. We make it easier for you to be a developer: to work together, to solve challenging problems, and to create the world’s most important technologies. We foster a collaborative community where you can come together to create the future of software and make a difference in the world.
The GitHub platform is where you can create, share, and ship the best code possible. Whether you are a student, hobbyist, consultant, enterprise professional, partner or executive, GitHub allows you to build software in the way that works best for you.
GitHub is much more than code. It is the home of open source collaboration. It is where new developers get started and where experienced developers expand their knowledge. It is a community where you can come together to solve the unsolvable and test the limits of what software can do.
