Priorities for TSCA funds

Tiki does receive Donations but it doesn’t amount to a lot of money. The Fundraising will set up some additional initiatives to get more funding via grants and Affiliate programs and other Advertising.

This page is to discuss/prioritize general guidelines where funding will be allocated. We try to get everything sponsored but if we can’t, here are general priorities.


Bare bones

  1. Domain names & SSL certificate
  2. Yearly Association fees & dues (the official incorporation paperwork)
  3. Trademark renewal (once per 10-years)
  4. Servers (this could likely be sponsored but it’s not a high expense at the moment)
  5. Legal fees


  1. Promotional merchandise to distribute at community events.
  2. Organizational expenses for TikiFests (rent space, etc.)
  3. Travel expenses for TikiFests
    • Some people come from very far and/or live in a country where the currency is weak and travel costs are prohibitive.

Other notes

  • It is not expected to use funding for feature development because this is something that should come from the community, in an organic way. (do-ocracy)
    • But there could eventually be development funding for things that are hard to fund organically (ex.: revamps, UI improvements, new themes, etc.) with a focus on things which bring more funding
  • We must be vary wary of engaging the association in recurring costs
