The TYPO3 Association is a non-profit organisation and was founded in 2004 to provide funds for long-term development goals, which would not be possible otherwise. Since then it has been able to draw about 750 members, companies, and freelancers alike. The funds are coming from membership fees, donations, and the annual TYPO3 conference, T3CON. Everyone can apply for funding for his or her project, as long as it provides substantial and sustained value to the project and its users. Among the development efforts funded by the Association are various improvements to TYPO3 Version 6.x, the development of TYPO3 Neos and TYPO3 Flow to name a few. The usage of funds is decided upon by the members via the Expert Advisory Board. Becoming a member will help TYPO3 to help you and will foster its ongoing development.
Starting from the basic idea, to raise money through membership fees to pay for long-term development, a few other goals have been added:
TYPO3 is world's most used Open Source Enterprise Web CMS
