Creating a Collective

With the implementation of the new Dashboard interface, we are currently in the process of updating our documentation and some pages may be out of date. Thank you for your patience. Please contact our support team if you need any assistance.

Open Collective allows you to create a transparent funding page for your project in just a few clicks. No need to incorporate, hire a lawyer and accountant, or define organizational roles!

Once you've registered on Open Collective, reveal the dropdown menu by clicking on your username, then click on the + New button under the My Collectives section.

Then, select the category that best describes your Collective.

If you are not creating an open-source Collective, you will be immediately directed to a Collective creation form, where you will be asked for your Collective name, URL slug of choice, and a brief description of your Collective's activities.

If you are creating a Collective for an open-source project, you will be directed to a verification process to join the Open Source Collective fiscal host. More info about that here.
