Dear Ona Community,
For the past 18 months, we’ve provided Ona as a free service while at the same time adding features and providing support. We’ve added permissions, better visualizations and more management features to our beta site. We also have new exciting features in the works.
Beginning October 1st, we will begin limiting the free service level to 500 monthly private form submissions and 500 MB attachment storage. Usage beyond those limits will require a paid account. All data in public datasets will remain free, forever.
We are accepting paid signups for the Ona service immediately. Signing up now gives you immediate access to a world class support team and qualifies you for an early adopter discount. To get started, visit the upgrade page and we will work with you to develop a pricing plan that meets your specific usage and support needs.
The reason for introducing pricing is simple: we need to allow our team to focus on continuing to build a service that you love. To achieve this, we need to be in a position where our sole focus is our users. We want to align our goals with the users who support our work rather than relying on external grants. We are excited about continuing this journey with your support.
As an organization, our mission is to make data insights accessible for all. We are committed to the individuals and organizations around the world who are using Ona to create social impact in their communities. With that in mind, we are excited to introduce the Impact Grant Program, which will provide free Ona access and support to organizations who are making a difference and might have difficulty paying. To learn more about the Impact Grant Program and to see if you qualify, please visit the program page.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Matt Berg CEO, Ona
