Collaborating with PublicVR
In keeping with our public mission, we provide a number of ways for individuals and organizations to work with us.

Start A New Project
If you have a project that falls within our general mission, we will gladly consider brining it within our practical and legal framework. We can provide Insurance, payroll and accounting services, webhosting, forum and code sharing, and other administrative functions. Most importantly, we can act as fiscal agent for grant providing agencies and private foundations. Because PublicVR is a 501(c)3 organization, we can apply for government grants and donations to us are tax-deductible. To meet our tax-exempt purpose, some major portion of the intellectual property OR the functionality/usefulness of your project would have to be shared with the public for at least five years.
Contributing your intellectual property to PublicVR is an excellent way to reach a wider audience and share resources with like-minded developers. It is also a good way to protect your project from legal challenges by anyone else who wishes to claim ownership. We will vigorously oppose any third-party attempt to patent or copyright PublicVR intellectual property.
Donate Supporting Materials
We will never have enough supporting materials for our educational software. No educational tool is or should be used in isolation but should be part of a well-designed curriculum, sensitive to students' needs and goals. We will gladly redistribute any additional media that helps anyone use our software.
