Become a Member or Corporate Sponsor

The Eclipse Foundation operates and services the Eclipse open source projects and communities. Funding for the Foundation comes from companies that join as members of the Foundation and pay annual dues. We welcome all companies and organizations to join the Foundation and support the Eclipse community.

Companies can also support the Eclipse Foundation and community through our Corporate Sponsor program.

Please note that you do not have to be a member to use the Eclipse technology or participate in an Eclipse open source project. Anyone can download our software from our download servers. To gain access to the newsgroups, please fill out this form to receive a user name and password.
