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. Use the search bar to find the Collective you want to add funds for and click on Add Funds.

Clicking on Add Funds should direct you to this form:


The amount of funds you want to send to a Collective.


A short description of those funds.


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