AMS-IX annually reserves a modest sponsor budget for projects fitting our 'for the good of the Internet' philosophy or events that have a tight relationship to our industry. With our not-for-profit attitude we carefully select sponsor projects, they should be targeted, fitting and preferably not-for-profit themselves.
Sometimes AMS-IX sponsors (events of) its members/customers or relations in kind by (temporarily) providing an exchange port for their use.
In case you want AMS-IX to sponsor your event and you feel you meet the above criteria please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Besides sponsoring aimed at marketing we have a more philanthropic budget for which employees can submit a request for supporting a cause they think worthy. One of previous years' choices was supporting Foundation "Het Atelier" for kids in lesser fortunate areas of Amsterdam to develop themselves socially, personally and creatively, another one was for Foundation Unuputin in Surinam helping kids go to school. Furthermore we supported Biking for Energy, which is a project to raise money for the research into Mitochondrial deseases and supported to build a natural pool close to Amsterdam.
