NaNoWriMo has had a number of corporate sponsors. While NaNoWriMo is primarily funded by individual donors, the corporate sponsors help close the gap. These sponsors usually provide financial funding, but others also provide special offers for participants. Sponsors appear at the top of the Brought To You By page.

A corporate sponsor must donate a minimum of $2,500 USD [1] to NaNoWriMo for each year of participation. Many are small independent companies or individual developers hoping to recoup their costs by providing incentives for participants to purchase their software. Supporting the corporate sponsors is a good way to get high quality writing software and encourage more corporate donations to NaNoWriMo.

Special Offers and Greetings from Camp NaNoWriMo Sponsors

Special Offers and Greetings from Camp NaNoWriMo Sponsors is a forum that was added to the Camp NaNoWriMo category of the NaNoWriMo forums in 2013 in order to better accommodate the growing number of Camp NaNo Sponsors. Like its main event counterpart, it features a post from staff detailing out the sponsor's offer. Occasionally, a sponsor will have an account of their own to respond to questions in the thread.

Forum Description

Topics and Threads

Threads for each Camp NaNoWriMo sponsor are posted here by staff (usually Heather.) New threads by participants are not allowed here and will be locked and/or moved. Due to its position near the top of the forum during the off-season, this forum was a popular victim of the 2014 spam attacks.

Sponsors for 2015 included Scrivener, BookBaby, Pronoun and Inked Voices.
