Add Funds Manually

In January of 2020, we introduced new paid plans for Fiscal Hosts. Adding funds received through other channels is free up to $1000 across Collectives for Fiscal Hosts on the Starter plan. After you've reached that limit, you will need to upgrade your plan.

You can manually add funds to a Collective directly. This is useful when you receive a donation for a Collective outside the Open Collective system (like a bank transfer) and want to apply it to a Collective's budget.

Log in and go to your Fiscal Host dashboard. Click on the Hosted Collectives tab.

An overview of your Fiscal Host dashboard. The Hosted Collectives tab is the last one listed.

Use the search bar to find the Collective you want to add funds for.

Using the search bar to find the right Collective.

Click on the Add Funds button.

After finding the right Collective, clicking on the Add Funds button will open the right form.

And fill the form with all required information to add the funds to that Collective with the following information:

The form to manually add funds to a Collective.
  • The amount of funds you want to send to a Collective.

  • Your host fee, which is the you charge your Collectives. It's already set to your default, but you change it to an one-time fee of your preference.

  • A short description of those funds.

  • The source of those funds. It can be your Fiscal Host, another Collective, or an Organization.

Once you're done, just click on Add Funds.
