The OSL offers support services to the world's leading open source projects as part of its mission to contribute to the growth of open source software by promoting promising projects, building connections between industry and the public sector and training the next generation of open source innovators.
The support we receive in turn from our partners allows us to advocate for open source around the world. The lab is a nonprofit organization supported by gifts from those who share our ambition to place open source tools in the hands of government, corporations, business owners and students to help them work and learn more efficiently and collaboratively.
Generous support from industry partners has been essential to help us make the impact we've had on open source — as have gifts from individuals who want to support the rise of open source and those who benefit from the software we host and develop. To join the OSL in shaping the future of open source and promoting software that people around the world can create together and use together, make a gift to the lab through the OSU Foundation.
