Manage multiple collectives.

Open Collective makes it easy to host multiple collectives on one single legal entity.

We send you a monthly email report with all transactions per collective aggregated in a CSV and a PDF document with all invoices and expenses that have been paid. This makes the work of your accountant a breeze.
