EventInfra supports non-profit/community-run events by providing network infrastructures.
Stichting EventInfra is an open project that is founded by members of Stichting Bitlair, the hackerspace in Amersoort (NL). EventInfra supports several EU-based tech-events by providing loans for networking equipment.

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic the number of EventInfra-supported events in 2020 is extremely low; this has resulted in very limited cashflow. Stichting EventInfra has enough reserves to survive at least the rest of 2020, but please consider donating to Stichting EventInfra whereever feasible.
