Through OCF’s 501(c)(3) status, our Collectives are eligible for a variety of nonprofit rates and benefits. Don’t forget to inquire to vendors and venues about a possible discount! Please note that sales tax exemption rules differ across all 50 states and sometimes municipalities. Therefore, this is not an area where OCF can support projects in accessing and we recommend you seek the support of a local fiscal sponsor where this support is required.
Techsoup has expressed that discounts through TechSoup do NOT extend to fiscally hosted projects. This is unfortunate, as many such discounts rely on a Techsoup ID to activate, but there's not much we can do about it.
Slack offers discounts through TechSoup, and Techsoup is not compatible with fiscal hosting.
In partnership with Loomio, we are able to offer groups hosted by Open Collective Foundation free access to the platform for their group. To enable this service, groups should complete the following steps.
