Open Collective

OverviewSuggest Edit

OpenCollective enables groups to pull money together and spend it transparently without having to open a legal entity or bank account.  It helps to collect recurring contributions from supporters, whether one is funding an ongoing work on open source software, collecting dues for a parent association, or charging a monthly fee for a food coop. Once the money is on Open Collective, reimbursing expenses is simple, and everyone can see how funds are being spent.
