What to do with remaining DigitalOcean sponsorship credits

Hi everybody!

I’m a part of a small, student-founded nonprofit organization which recently hosted a competitive online event. DigitalOcean provided us with a collection of credits to distribute to the winners of our event but after the event had ended, we were left with a small portion of undistributed credits as some of our winners had refused to collect their awards.

The terms of our sponsorship didn’t specify what to do with any remaining credits, so I’d like to ask: What can we do with our remaining DO sponsorship credits?

Are we required to return them? Or are we allowed to keep the remaining credits exclusively for our organization’s use in a future event/circumstance that requires us to reserve some cloud infrastructure?

Thank you so much!

You can certainly use the remaining credits that you have on the account that weren’t claimed. Please note that all credits expire 12 months after they are issued.
