Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Drupal.org is a home of the Drupal project and the Drupal community. It is supported and maintained by the Drupal Association with the help of the Drupal community volunteers. Created in 2001, it is one of the largest, continuously operating examples of Drupal.
Over the years, Drupal.org has grown from a single server owned by a contributor to multiple racks at the data center, plus cloud resources and content distribution networks spread across the globe. Drupal.org is more than a single site. There are over 20 services and sub-sites that make up the ecosystem that powers the Drupal community.
