Make a Pledge
If the cause or collective that you want to support is not yet on Open Collective, you can make a
pledge. This will incentivize them to create an open collective for their activities and offer you much
more visibility on how your money is spent to advance their cause.
Once they create it (and verify that they own the URL you’ll enter in this form), you will receive an
email to ask you to fulfill your pledge.
At the moment, you can only pledge for Open Source projects with a GitHub repository or organization. We
request the project to have a least 100 stars on GitHub!
What is a pledge?A pledge allows supporters (companies and individuals) to pledge
funds towards a collective that hasn’t been created yet. If you can’t find a collective you want to
support, pledge to it!
What happens after I pledge?Once someone makes a pledge to a collective, we automatically create a pledged collective. We don’t spam
folks, so please help us reach out to the community via twitter / github or, if you can, via email.
When do I pay?Once that pledged collective is claimed, we will email you to fulfill your pledge.
How do I claim a pledged collective?You’ll need to authenticate with the github profile that owns / admins that project. Just click on the
Claim Collective button in the pledged collective. We will be rolling out other forms of authentication
in the future.
