The Open Collective Foundation 501(c)(3) offers fiscal sponsorship as a service to help initiatives get up and running in one day. No need to create a bank account or legal entity. Our platform enables you to easily receive donations and disburse them.
We take care of receiving tax deductible donations for your initiative through our registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We manage your expenses, file taxes, and take care of accounting. Let us do the admin so you can focus on your mission!
We automate the back-office processes so you can spend no time doing admin. We provide a dashboard where you can see the budget we are holding for you, how much you've spent and everything you need to tell your donors how to fund you. Reporting is automatic and in real time.
Many initiatives don’t have a bank account or a charity legal entity set up to receive funds. We help them by taking care of tax reporting and financial admin. We keep track of the budget, process expense claims, and handle payments. Easily add multiple grants from different sources into one budget.
Allow your supporters to make tax deductible donations via credit card, bank transfer, or PayPal. As part of many Donor Advised Funds (DAFS), donations through them are easy! We can provide the invoices and documentation your funders need.
Anyone in your initiative can submit expenses. Once approved by you, we process them for payment via bank transfer or PayPal. A dashboard allows you to easily view, approve, and request payment expenses all in one place.
Like crowdfunding rewards, a beautifully designed page for your initiative, updates to your supporters, events functionality, and more.
Our Fiscal Sponsored Projects have received funding through Open Collective Foundation from these entities.
