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 user association. Membership in the DuckDB user association is obtained by donating to the DuckDB foundation at the levels outlined below. DuckDB user association members collectively determine the communities' proposals regarding the DuckDB development roadmap which the DuckDB foundation will take into account going forward.

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