About the Event
DjangoCon US is not possible without your support. The spirit of the event focuses on providing a platform for new and experiences speakers to share their stories and knowledge.
Our goal is to keep ticket costs low while providing:
- Free childcare stipends
- Opportunity grants
- A lactation room
- A centrally located venue
- Reimbursement for speaker travel and lodging expenses
- A networking party to start the event.
The DjangoCon US Slack channel currently has 700+ members where attendees get and give advice, discuss Django/Python issues, and all-around support each other, establishing a year-round connection that helps ensure the conference is as welcoming and comfortable as possible.
In the event that a profit is made from our fundraising efforts, we pay it forward by making a donation to the Django Software Foundation and supporting other Django events in North America who support our mission.
Endless thanks for your support, and we cannot wait to call you a partner in our mission.
Because the conference is organized by DEFNA, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, your sponsorship is tax-deductible!

Django and the Python community at large pride themselves on their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Talk to us about contributing to our Opportunity Grant Fund, which prioritizes grants for people from underrepresented groups. Diversity sponsorship funds will also be used to offset the cost of offering child care!
