Facebook joins the Blender Development Fund
The Blender Foundation has announced that Facebook has joined the Blender Development Fund as a Corporate Patron. Corporate Patron is the highest level of sponsorship available, offering enough funding for 2 full-time developers for a year.
According to the Blender Fund website, corporate sponsorship is aimed at companies “who want the option to monitor in more detail what will get funded with their contributions”. They get direct access to the Blender team for strategical discussions with roadmaps and priorities aligned to the sponsor’s needs. They are also consulted about the bi-annual planning for grants.
