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.


If you are including the 10% host fee in the Purchase Order (P.O.) / Invoice, here's our guide on how to calculate the host fee from the Gross amount so you receive the exact budgeted total amount (if any) in your collective or FUND balance. Kindly get in touch with Open Source Collective at hello@oscollective.org

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.
