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 full amount is reimbursed. 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? 
    • 8% + Stripe/PayPal transaction fee for online contributions.
    • 10% fee for bank transfers/wire payments.
    • 10% fee for tax deductible donations and grants

  • Are donations tax-deductible? 
Donations from US citizens are tax-deductible. For European citizens, it depends on the country they reside in. Please get in touch to find out if a donation could be eligible. 

Regarding the US, OC Europe has been certified as equivalent to Public Charity by NGOsource. U.S. funders, including private foundations, can treat a non-U.S. organization as equivalent to a U.S. public charity if the non-U.S. organization goes through the equivalency determination process. 

We also have a Fund in the US that allows US citizens to make tax-deductible donations to your collective.
