In just the first seven months of 2012 CustomWare is proud to announce we've reached our first milestone ($10,000) toward our goal of giving away $100,000 worth of software licenses to groups supporting worthy causes. The goal is to reach our target (which would mean more than 500 $199 vouchers) by 2014. Since January, we've given more than $12,000 to non-profits that have improved the strength of their Atlassian products by enabling our plugins and connectors to work hard for their organizations. In addition, community license holders have also reached out to CustomWare for discounts on our education services.
We take pride in promoting the efforts of these groups and we look forward to providing similar support to thousands of future causes.
Interested in learning more about our community license program? Follow the three steps below, or visit our guide for non-profits.
Step 1 - Evaluate a Plugin
Go to our web store and evaluate the plugins that you want to use. Add the evaluation license for your plugin to your cart and you'll get a 30 day evaluation key sent to you immediately.
Step 2 - Spread the word
We rely on word-of-mouth from our users to expand our customer base. Community license users have accelerated this process for us by blogging, tweeting and reviewing our products and we appreciate that. We've listed a number of small steps that we'd love you to complete in our guide.
Step 3 - Order
Place the order on our web store (the same way as you did for the evaluation), but add in the complete products that you would like.
Step 4 - Approval
If all is well with your application then after 2-3 business days you'll be granted a one year subsidized license. It will be available in your digital library for download!
We'd like to thank the dozens of charities that have reached out to us thus far. We're excited to continue our relationship and build on our previous successes.
