Sponsorship & Support

Our servers are graciously sponsored by Rackspace, at a value of $6,000 each month. They are our single largest sponsor, and Read the Docs wouldn't be possible without their generous support. You can view the full list of past sponsors in our documentation.

Below is a list of all the wonderful people who have supported our vision.

Thanks

This program is modeled after the fantastic Django Fellowship. Thanks for the inspiration.

Advertising

Advertising is our largest source of funding and has allowed Read the Docs to expand from its best-effort supported beginnings to the company we are today with a small but dedicated team of full-time engineers supporting free and open documentation.

In 2016, we launched our Ethical Ads initiative to build an advertising model that doesn't track our readers and respects their privacy. We have proven that this model works to fund open source infrastructure.

If your company is interested in reaching a 100% developer audience, please consider advertising on Read the Docs.
