Why is Material UI a "crowd-funded open-source project"?
Material UI (as well as Base UI and Joy UI) is open-source to give users great freedom in how they use the software, and to enable the community to have influence over how the project progresses to make it appropriate for a wide range of use-cases. To ensure that MUI's component libraries can stand the test of time for our users, they need to be well directed and financially sustainable.
The absolute best way to support MUI's ongoing development efforts is to become a sponsor. Crowd-sourced funding enables us to spend the most time directly working on improving MUI's products, which you and other MUI users then benefit from.
How is sponsorship money spent?
Sponsorship money is used to fund software development, testing, documentation, and releases of the MUI software suite.
Is sponsorship required to use MUI's products?
Users are not obligated to give back to MUI, but it is in their interest to do so.
By significantly reducing the amount of work needed to achieve business goals and reducing running costs, MUI's libraries result in huge time and money savings for users. We encourage organizations to contribute a portion of these savings back, enabling the project to advance more rapidly and result in even greater savings for your organization.
What's the difference between Patreon and OpenCollective?
Funds received via Patreon or other forms, directly support Olivier Tassinari and the core team mission. The funds go to a for-profit entity that employs some of the core team members.
Funds donated via OpenCollective are managed transparently and aimed to sustain the MIT core of MUI. MUI benefits from the Open Collective's fiscal sponsorship (hosted as a non-profit), in exchange for 10% of the donations.
These great services sponsor MUI's core infrastructure:
GitHub lets us host the Git repository and coordinate contributions.
Netlify lets us distribute the documentation.
BrowserStack lets us test in real browsers.
CodeCov lets us monitor test coverage.
