Donation Matching

Open Collective Foundation is closing down in 2024. The last day collectives can receive donations is March 15, 2024. Read more here.

Matching gifts vary widely in their processes, but we are happy to work with your employer or other corporate sponsors to facilitate match funding. Sometimes matching gifts are slow to arrive, depending on the matcher’s processes, and your budget will not be credited until the funds actually arrive. Please refer here for more about what info we require.

Sometimes OCF receives money without a description of which Collective to direct the funds to. It is important for donors to specify the name of the Collective in order to avoid delays. If you think your Collective has been sent funds, but that money has not been allocated to the budget, reach out to us to let us know (+provide screenshots/receipts).

OCF can process matching donations (including employee giving programs, matching gifts, contributions-matching, funds arriving from third-party giving platforms, and grant matches), but in order to do so, we need additional information about the donation.
