I’m an independent maintainer, so sponsors enable me to continue to provide features, bug fixes, security reports, triage, mentoring, and answering of questions.
If your business depends on the open source software that I maintain, consider sponsoring my work. A simple mental exercise is to consider how difficult or expensive it would be if I had to stop maintaining them, and you had to replace them or write your own. Then use that to determine how much to sponsor my work. Consider it a business risk mitigation.

A retainer with me could provide your company with even more value, such as:
- Private office hours
- Private reviews
- Expert advice
- Security support
