OpenUPM is an open-source service and completely free to use. However, the amount of effort needed to host, maintain and develop new features for the project is not sustainable without proper financial backing. You can support openupm development via the following methods:
# Help the Community Grow

If you run a business and are using OpenUPM in a revenue-generating product, it makes business sense to sponsor OpenUPM development: it ensures the project that your product relies on stays healthy and actively maintained. It can also help your exposure in the OpenUPM community and makes it easier to attract OpenUPM developers.
If you are an individual user and have enjoyed the productivity of using OpenUPM, consider donating as a sign of appreciation - like buying me coffee once in a while 😃
