Voting Memberships

As core stakeholders of the Python Software Foundation community, Supporting Members, Managing & Contributing Members, and PSF Fellows are all eligible to vote in PSF Board Elections.

1. Sign up as a Supporting Member here!

Supporting Members donate an annual membership fee of $99 to the PSF to sustain the Foundation and support the Python community. We have also introduced a sliding scale rate for Supporting Membership, which you can sign up for here. Your support is crucial to the PSF's ability to do our work making Python available and supporting our community.

More details are available on our Supporting Membership page.

2. Self-Certify as a Managing or Contributing Member here!

Managing & Contributing Members qualify because of their work for the Python community and ecosystem. Fill out the short form linked above to sign up!

You qualify as a Contributing Member if you dedicate at least five hours per month working on projects which advance the mission of the PSF by creating or maintaining open source software available to the public at no charge.
