Open Collective Europe

Fiscal host organization for EU-based collectives

About


OC Europe offers nonprofit status + fundraising + money management software to groups working on solidarity and social issues.

Our organisation hosts 300+ social impact projects across Europe. We are a Non Profit Organization dedicated to providing a simple, open, lightweight path for charitable initiatives and communities to manage their finances across Europe.

FAQ

  • What can an open collective do? An open collective can collect one time and recurring donations, grants and sponsorships. Anyone in the community can file expenses for reimbursement. After approval by the administrators of the collective, the host (in this case Open Collective Europe Non Profit) reimburse the full amount. Learn More

  • Can my collective receive financing from public institutions or grants? Yes. All collectives hosted under OC Europe can receive subsidies after signing a cooperation agreement with us. Learn more

  • How much does it cost? 
    • There is a 6% administration fee + credit card fees (1.4% + €0.25 for European cards and 2.9% + €0.25 for non-European cards). 
    • The fee is 8% if your collective: 
      • Receives a grant or a sponsorship
      • Receives tax-deductible donations
      • Receives a public subsidy
      • Receives a manual bank transfer

  • Are donations tax-deductible? For the moment, only donations from Belgian donors are tax deductible. We are working to expand this option to most Western European countries.
