The Open Preservation Foundation is an international, not-for-profit membership organisation enabling shared solutions for effective and efficient digital preservation.

Membership fees are set by the Board of Directors and were last updated in June 2015.

Why become an OPF member?

Our members share a commitment to advancing digital preservation and work together to further our shared strategic priorities in the areas of technology, knowledge, and advocacy and alliances.

Membership is available in two categories: Charter and Affiliate. Charter members steer our strategy and annual activity planning. They also benefit from exclusive or priority access to our interest groups, training and events, and support in adopting and maintaining our open source software products. Affiliate members have access to the outputs of our activities and may choose to contribute effort in lieu of subscription fees to further digital preservation for the benefit of the community.

Members help further our efforts to ensure the long-term sustainability of  the OPF’s open source digital preservation reference toolset. Part of the funding from membership fees goes directly towards the hosting, maintenance, and improvement of the software resulting in robust and reliable tools that are relied on across the digital preservation community. Members can choose to participate in product boards which govern the tool roadmaps and ensure members’ requirements for bug fixes and new feature requests are prioritised.

Join us to collaborate with international partners to address digital preservation challenges.
