Couchsurfing is a private for-profit C corporation. It used to be a non profit organization that promoted hospitality exchange though its website, couchsurfing.org.

BeWelcome was started long before CouchSurfing become a for profit company. Within BeWelcome there are some assurances that it can not be sold, see also Can_BeWelcome_Be_Sold.

Most BW members are very welcoming to people in general, whether they have been or still are active in CouchSurfing or not.
