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!
First, reveal the dropdown menu by clicking on your username.click on the + New button under the My Collectives section.
Then, select the category that best describe your Collective.
If you are creating a Collective for communities of any kind or climate initiatives, 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.
But if you are creating a Collective for an open source project, you will have to go through a verification process to join Open Source Collective fiscal host before filling that form.
We offer two verification methods: verification using GitHub stars and manual verification.
Select the GitHub repository you would like to use in your application. If you select an organization repository, you will be given the option to either create a Collective for the repository, or a Collective for the organization itself.
If you project don't meet that criteria, click on Request manual verification—your request will be reviewed using an alternative verification criteria.
