Expense policies

Our payouts are processed twice a week. We endeavor to pay within 7 business days of an expense being approved by the admin of the Collective, provided all required information is included and correct. We make payments via ACH bank transfer and can only make payouts to countries served by our payment processor, Wise.  OCF requires the profile name and the name in the payout method to match. 
For Reimbursements:
A good receipt will have:
  • Vendor or Company Name, 
  • Date, 
  • Itemized list of transactions,
  • Method of payment, 
  • Picture should show the whole receipt - including the total at the bottom

Partial requests are ok. (You may request under the total amount from receipt, but NOT over.)

OCF cannot reimburse payments made via electronic benefits transfer (EBT), any car/large asset purchases, or for car repairs.

If requesting reimbursement for a bill payment or invoice, please upload a copy of the [water/ heat/etc.] bill that this payment has been applied to and a copy of the receipt or proof of payment, if not already provided in the copy of the bill.
For Invoices:
Please include detailed information in the Description of the work done. e.g. Instead of writing “Admin Support”, please write: "Administrative, research, and meeting support"

You are not required to upload an invoice document, as the data you submit in the expense form is sufficient. If you want to include an uploaded invoice, please make it out to Collective name, Open Collective Foundation, 440 N. Barranca Avenue #3717, Covina, CA 91723 USA 

Please get in touch with your neighborhood leader for support navigating local resources. With their support, you could also request up to $100 in cash assistance funding.

Cash Assistance Funding:
If someone within AMAN's networks is able to offer cash assistance, then they can submit an expense here for reimbursement.

Allowable Cash Assistance Expenses:
Expenses that can be submitted include receipts and bills for groceries, disinfection supplies, masks, utilities, medical expenses, rent, or other emergency needs.

For rent and utilities requests, please first apply to the Ark: and to the other non-profit orgs that are on our website:
