Open Collective for Fiscal Hosts

Some Collectives don’t have a bank account or legal entity set up to receive funds, and want help taking care of things like tax reporting and financial admin. We call organizations who provide this service (sometimes called fiscal sponsorship) Fiscal Hosts.

Open Collective allows fiscal hosts to reduce overhead and easily manage budgets and expenses for multiple projects. Our automated reporting makes accounting a breeze. No more messy spreadsheets!
