The TYPO3 Association is a not-for-profit organisation and was founded in 2004 to provide funds for long-term development goals, which would not be possible otherwise. Since then it has been able to draw over 750 members, companies, and freelancers alike. The funds are coming from membership fees, donations, and the annual TYPO3 Conference, T3CON. Everyone can apply for funding for his or her project, as long as it provides substantial and sustained value to the project and its users. Among the development efforts funded by the Association are various improvements to TYPO3 CMS.
Cooperating with SkillDisplay the TYPO3 Association supports the development of the SkillDisplay platform. Moreover the very good communication and cooperation with the TYPO3 Education Committee allowed for the worlds first TYPO3 Editor Certification at the Higher Technical Education Facility Rennweg Vienna.
For the first year of the cooperation, the best 2 students of 2016 were granted a free trip to the TYPO3 Camp Mallorca.
