ACCREDITED NONPROFIT STATUS SINCE 2006

Fueling Community Programs and User Groups with over $4M in Funding!

Scrum Alliance obtained its accredited nonprofit status in 2006, empowering us to serve our mission of transforming the world of work. As a nonprofit, we can focus our funding on supporting you through learning and resources, customized training, industry-leading coaching and the largest Scrum community in the world. Our focus is on serving the Scrum Alliance community. Since 2007, we’ve invested over $4,000,000 back into the community. Here are some of the things you have helped us accomplish:

  • Support for over 150 user groups
  • Sponsorship of thousands of third party events and gatherings
  • Quality resources, including articles, podcasts, webinars, and more, for all - not only certificate holders



 

ACCESSIBLE WORLDWIDE GATHERINGS AND EVENTS

Supporting and Empowering Scrum and Agile Practitioners

Your support allows us to make Gatherings and events more accessible for everyone, everywhere. We do this by setting lower prices and subsidizing local gatherings around the world, empowering those communities. We offer funding and support to user groups with the resources they need to create memorable and exciting events. Additionally, specially curated content is made available to all those practicing Scrum and agile, not just certificate holders.
