We have community funds you can apply for. Yes, you.


This program is aimed at providing small grants to support local initiatives. For example, paying for pizza at a meetup could qualify for a microgrant, or supporting a longer-term community activity might qualify for a grant, or maybe a custom sponsorship would help provide certainty.

The maximum amount and requirements vary for different grant types

  • a microgrant is AUD$250 per activity.
  • a grant is AUD$1,000 per grant
  • a sponsorship is user-defined

The grant process is designed to be relatively quick and easy.

See the OSGeo Oceania Sponsorship Policy for more information.


First meeting of Kiribati Women in Mapping

Microgrant funding was used to pay for catering and venue hire at the first Kiribati Women in Mapping stakeholder meeting, organised by the group founder Ueakeia Matin Tofinga. The event was a huge success thanks to Ueakeia’s efforts and OSGeo Oceania was credited and mentioned during the event…and also in the Kiribati TV News!
