Open Collective Foundation

Offers nonprofit status + fundraising + money management software to aligned groups in the US

About


The Foundation’s mission is to promote projects in the US with the following charitable purposes: 

  • increasing access to educational resources and training, 
  • creating a positive social impact and 
  • developing tools to improve civic participation within cities or communities.

Education

With the advance of technology and the movement towards a society where people work together to enhance and develop the future, there has been an increase in the number of organizations and groups that are coming together to promote education. 

Social Impact

The Foundation’s social impact purpose will be aimed at finding ways to:
  1. Eliminate prejudice and discrimination
  2. Combat community deterioration
  3. Decrease juvenile delinquency
  4. Serve the less fortunate or distressed
  5. Serve to prevent animal or child cruelty
  6. Create a positive impact on society

Civic Participation

We will sponsor projects aimed at fostering civic participation, democratic debate, rebuild community ties and strengths.
