Contributing Gold Partner

The Contributing Gold Partner badge shines a well-deserved light on the Gold Partners that go the extra mile for the continuing growth of the Umbraco open-source project and its community.

Choosing a Gold Partner with this badge means that you're working with a close partner of ours who's actively helping us improve the software and/or helping us foster the open-source Umbraco community.

Those who do so get this shiny badge to show off on their Gold Partner profile on the Umbraco website, plus their own online media.
