API for sponsorship

Solved! Go to Solution.

Is there an API to access sponsorship information?


What I'd like to have:

connect via PHP to GitHub


1) check the total amount of money earned per month

as displayed here:


2) obtain the list of sponsors (their email address) and their sponsor tier ($ per month)

having known their email address and tier, I can automatically grant badges/ranks/colors on my own forum for my supporters.

Re: API for sponsorship

Hi @GregSlazinski,


Thank you for being here! Per @devonzuegel:


"We're currently building an Activity Timeline that shows a bunch of different types of events, including transactions. We're also planning to build a transaction CSV download that you can export to do this sort of analysis on. We're projecting that both of these will be out in the next month or two. 😊

In the meantime, you could look at (a) what tier a sponsor was on and (b) look up when you received the celebration email saying that they've started sponsor you as a fairly good approximation of how much they've sponsored you in total."

I hope this helps!

My very best,

You can learn about the Sponsors API and see public sponsor-related schema info by going to and searching "sponsor" in the search bar to the right, halfway down the page:

Re: API for sponsorship

My post got removed? How would you write GraphQL to see if a particular user has sponsored you? I don't want to paginate through all the sponsors, specially when the rateLimit is 5000 requests per hour!?
