Legally support communities that don't have a legal entity.
International or local communities often don't have a legal entity. Open Collective enables you to financially support those communities by working with fiscal sponsors who can provide your company with an invoice.
You’ll always know what your contributions are being used for, in real time.
Get an invoice for your donations.
Supporting communities can be an accounting nightmare. Most of them don’t have a legal entity and therefore they cannot give you an invoice for your donation. Open Collective solves that by hosting collectives that fall in the same category on one single legal entity.
Get once a month a consolidated invoice for all your donations to all collectives that are hosted on the same legal entity. Your accounting department will thank you for that!
Your company has a special process for managing vendors? No problem. We have you covered. We do it at a host (fiscal sponsor) level, because it doesn’t make sense to go through such a heavy process for every single community (collective).
Keeping track of your donations to dozens if not hundreds of collectives is hard. With Open Collective you receive a monthly report that aggregates all your participations in one place.

More features for sponsors
When using a credit card is not convenient, send a bulk payment to your host and create a pre-paid card for your organization that you can use to make donations at will.
We know that sometimes making the case up the chain for sustaining open source is not always easy. For all you heroes inside of each company, we put together some resources to help you succeed.
