We give you stuff. You give us stuff. Everyone wins!
We get a lot of requests to help out some really cool projects, programs and organizations. We've been able to get involved here and there over the years and we've gotten to see some incredible work from our community, but now we're getting official! Our Community Partnership team here at SparkFun has put together a new program that will help those of you who have special requests get the support you need from SparkFun to make your project the best it can be.
This program is the best way to give back while highlighting the excellent work that our customers bring to the DIY electronics world. This means if you apply for a partnership, be prepared to share your work with the SparkFun community. We're making the process as easy as possible for you to get our help. Just fill out this form.
When you fill out the application, feel free to be as detailed as possible. We receive hundreds of requests every year and while we hope to support every single one of them, the best way for us to have as big an impact as possible with your organization and the maker community at large is for our applicants to share their stories with us. We're looking for individuals and organizations that embrace open source, and who seek to make the world a better place with maker technology.
All applications will be reviewed on the third Thursday of every month, and awards for partnership will be announced via email to beneficiaries and on our social media the last day of every month. After that, your project or event will be featured on our social media or our very own Inventorspace.
We hope to see your application soon, and look forward to supporting as many people as possible in 2017.
