Purchase Orders and Procurement

Giving on behalf of your company? Open Source Collective can register as a provider to your organization.

Open Source Collective is a 501c6 non-profit, registered in California. We offer a range of options for companies to make and manage contributions on the Open Collective platform.

We are a registered service provider to many companies including:

Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Meta (nee Facebook), Salesforce, Adobe, Stripe, Samsung, AirBnB, Shopify, Etsy, Indeed, Coinbase, Cloudflare, and O'Reilly Media.

If your company is not listed above get in touch and we'll register as a provider.

How it works

We'll work with you to establish the best vehicle for you and your organization, for instance setting up a Fund, issuing employee gift cards, or simply making a large, one-off donation. Then:

  • Open Source Collective will register as a provider to your organization including signing any necessary agreements. We also have template agreements of our own and experienced legal counsel to review yours.

  • Your procurement team may generate a purchase order.

  • We'll issue an invoice to your organization.

  • When the invoice is paid we will distribute the funds as agreed.


Open Source Collective charges a fixed 10% fee on all contributions received on the initial deposit. i.e. we do not charge an additional 10% to Collectives when donation distributions are made.
