The info I got was:

The normal, free package gives you five concurrent jobs (which equals five
concurrent workers, so to speak).
Beyond that, the next step up includes 10 extra concurrent jobs,
effectively raising the limit to 15, for $500/month, paid annually and in
We are able to offer a 30% reduction for certified non-profits.

So it sounds like for $4,200/yr the project can triple the number of build
workers, and that's without any additional negotiation.
If folks who have authority want to pursue this, you can email
support_at_[hidden] to continue discussions.
