Plone Foundation

The Plone Foundation exists to protect and promote Plone.

We provide support for development and marketing, and are modeled after similar ventures such as the Apache Software Foundation. We are the legal owner of the Plone codebase, trademarks, and domain names. Our goal is to ensure Plone remains the premier open source content management system to broaden its acceptance and visibility.

The Foundation is governed by an elected Board of Directors and supported by: Members, Sponsors and Heroes, Plone Teams, and the global community.
