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 approval from a member of our admin team for reimbursement before incurring any expenses on behalf of Distribute Aid.  Money is tight and most of our funding goes towards supply-chain operations, grassroots infrastructure, and expected administrative expenses.  We cannot guarantee that expenses will be accepted / reimbursed without prior approval.

Reimbursable expenses (with pre-approval) usually fall into the following categories:
  • Procurement, storage, shipping, customs fees, and other supply-chain / logistics expenses to source & move aid.  This includes training for our operations team, for example to ensure compliance with national & international regulations when moving Dangerous Goods.
  • Cost-of-living stipends to support our full-time volunteer team members (with an appropriate invoice from the volunteer).
  • Travel expenses to meet new / existing partners, evaluate projects, setup infrastructure, or represent DA and our network of grassroots partners at conferences & events.
  • Administrative expenses, such as office supplies, tech tools & services, and professional services (legal, accounting, etc).
