My organization is not in a position to contribute monetarily, but we would like to contribute technical services. Is there a way for us to be involved?

Technology Supporter designations are available for organizations who make valuable in-kind donations of technology support services. Please contact your local Chapter Leader if you would like to become a Chapter Supporter in this manner or contact Kelly Santalucia if you would like to become an Organizational Supporter.

I’m an active (chapter leader, project leader, committee member). Does that mean I’m an OWASP Honorary Member and get to vote?

No. During the 2009 election, OWASP Honorary Memberships were granted to all historical chapter leaders, project leaders and committee members, but those honorary memberships have expired. We ask that you please become an OWASP Individual Member Join Here to support OWASP. Alternately, you may also request a new OWASP Honorary Membership by submitting a description of your recent activities in support of OWASP. Honorary Membership is now available year round. Honorary Membership does expire 1 year from the date issued, and you do have to re-apply for it. We thank you for your ongoing support of OWASP, and we require this for tracking purposes for these requests from individuals around the world.

My organization supports OWASP, but the annual cost to become a Corporate Supporter is too expensive. What options are available?

A great way to participate in OWASP is to support your local chapter. Please look into becoming a Chapter Supporter at the level where you feel comfortable. This will allow you to support OWASP’s mission and help promote a vibrant application security community in your area. Hopefully in the future you will be in a position to become a Global Corporate Member.

Why Should I Become An OWASP Member or Corporate Member?

OWASP provides documentation, tools, methodologies, standards, articles, and message forums (“OWASP Materials”) as a service to Internet users worldwide to help users and developers understand more about application security. OWASP makes these materials available to end users to help them acquire, build, test, and operate secure software. In addition to the benefits you receive as described above, your membership helps to support the growth of OWASP and the development of new and improved OWASP Materials. Because we are an open, non-commercial entity, we can take on projects that commercial entities driven by profit motives could not. Everyone benefits from these projects. Your support will help OWASP continue to find and fight the causes of insecure software. Read why some companies have chosen to join OWASP as a Corporate Member under our Testimonial section.
