Open source and non-profit campaign launched

Published on September 25th, 2022

We’re big fans of open source software and use a bunch in our codebase. People building and maintaining high quality software essentially for free should be rewarded more.

A while ago, GitHub introduced “Sponsors”, which was a nice addition. So people can sponsor open source projects / developers on a monthly basis.

We’d like to give back as well and offer our “Business” plan for free to eligible accounts.

Who can apply

In general, anybody who wants to use eniston solely for open source and / or non-profit projects can apply. There are some gotchas though.

You may not be eligible if

  • you have 50+ recurring GitHub sponsors or companies donating / sponsoring your work otherwise*

  • your open source project has a paid plan / add-on

  • you want to use eniston for open source and non open source / non-profit projects (mix projects)

Please be aware that we reserve the right to revoke free access to accounts who were not fully honest beforehand. We do regular checks every few months and may downgrade accounts to the “Basic” plan if needed. In case of a downgrade, we’ll notify the account holder 14 days in advance.

* If you gain 50+ sponsors or get sponsored otherwise after we agreed on giving you free access, you won’t be downgraded.

How to apply

Since this is a manual process and we evaluate every request personally, you have to send an email to and give us a few details. Make sure to include

  • a link to your GitHub profile, or if non-profit a link to your organisation website

  • how many projects you plan to use eniston for

If you have questions or feedback, feel free to drop us a message.
