FreeCAD is a community project, created and maintained by individual persons motivated mainly by their wish to create a powerful, free and open-source CAD platform. There is currently no formal association or organization behind the FreeCAD project. Decisions are usually taken by consensus, but more generally, thanks to the very modular nature of FreeCAD, anybody is free to work in the direction they find best. Anybody is always welcome to participate and help the project, and participate to the community that gathers on the forum provided they respect the code of conduct.

Code contributions to FreeCAD are managed by a team of 7 veteran developers: jriegel, wmayer, yorik, abdullah, sliptonic, bernd and wandererfan. Anyone is welcome to help the reviewing process. Moderators take care of most other aspects of the project and maintain the community in shape.
