Open Collective Foundation
Our payouts are processed twice a week. We will endeavor to pay within 7 days of an expense being approved by the admin of the Collective or Fund. We can usually turn payments around much sooner, but can’t guarantee that and don’t want to set that expectation. We make payments via Bank Transfer (via Wise) and can only make payouts to countries served by these payment processors. You are not required to upload an invoice document (the data you submit in the expense form is sufficient) but if you would like to include an uploaded invoice, please make it out to: Collective name, Open Collective Foundation, 340 S LEMON AVE #3717, Walnut CA 91789 USA.
NOTE: We are not currently able to pay out expenses to Paypal accounts. You can find more info on this here. We will post an update and re-activate the option on the expense page when this is an option again.
- Expenses go through 2 rounds of review and approval. First, a member of LSMA will review and approve the expense or ask for additional information. Then, a member of Open Collective will review the expense or ask for additional information.
- The first approval does not guarantee you will be reimbursed.
- The Open Collective reviewer is not affiliated with LSMA. They are a third party financial accountability functionary that is necessary to remain in good legal status with State and Federal Law and allow us to use Open Collective to store and distribute funds.
- We cannot reimburse any request without a receipt or other associated documentation (a gas bill, a rent invoice, etc). If you don't have a receipt or other documentation, please email [email protected]
- As of June 2022, expenses up to $100 will be approved once per month per contributor.
- If you need additional money or help, please email [email protected]
- If you cannot submit a request on Open Collective, please email [email protected]
