DuckDB Foundation

The independent non-profit DuckDB Foundation safeguards the long-term maintenance and development of DuckDB. The foundation holds much of the intellectual property (IP) of the project. A number of organizations have thankfully chosen to support the DuckDB project through membership in the DuckDB Foundation. The foundation collects membership dues from those supporters. Supporters form the foundation advisory board which proposes development roadmap items. Membership dues are spent to implement the collectively agreed-upon road map.

All collected funds go directly to DuckDB development.
The foundation is non-profit.
