At Semaphore, we offer discounts for students, non-profit organizations, and educators, researchers, and fellows involved in computer science/programming education or research.
For non-profit organizations, we offer a 25% discount. This means that at the end of each monthly billing cycle your total bill will be discounted by 25%.
If you are eligible for this discount, all you need to do is email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide proof of your organization's status, e.g. an IRS determination letter for US based companies (or its equivalent in other countries).
