Open Collective Foundation is closing down in 2024. All funds must be paid out by September 30, 2024. Read more here.
Grants to 501(c)(3) public charities
If you would like to make a contribution to another 501(c)(3) public charity aligned with your Collective's mission, we need only review their IRS Determination Letter. Have the organization submit an expense and attach their 501(c)(3) IRS determination letter to the expense.
Grantmaking programs with only charity recipients
We are happy to work with you to develop a grantmaking program that meets your needs. Your Collective will take the lead on applications and reports, but if you develop any agreements related to your program, we will need to be involved. Reach out to tak this through.
Taxable grants to other entities
It is sometimes appropriate for Collectives to distribute grants aligned non-charities with their mission but that do not meet the requirements outlined in the OCF Grantmaking Policy. These sorts of distributions are only allowed on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to us to discuss if your Collective's mission does not fit with the aforementioned policy.
