How to Apply
Applying to be hosted by Open Source Collective takes only minutes!
- 3.Have at least 2 community members ready to add as admins. Admins have full permissions to change settings, approve expenses, and make financial contributions from the budget balance of your collective. Applications with less than 2 admins will not be accepted.
- You retain ownership of all your intellectual property.
- We will hold and manage funds on behalf of your collective, and we won't use them for anything else.
- If you want to enter into an agreement with anyone else as your collective, such as a contract with a vendor or providing a specific service to a sponsor, you need to get in touch. Legally the agreement would be with Open Source Collective.
If your collective is currently with another organization that does not use Open Collective, the process will depend on that organization’s requirements. Generally they will transfer your money to OSC and we will get you up and running on Open Collective.
Once you have tied up any loose ends with your current host, they can transfer the funds to us electronically. We can issue an invoice to them and sign agreements if needed. Our normal fees apply to funds transferred in.
