Become a financial contributor.
Contribute to a pooled fund to benefit multiple collectives within Open Collective Foundation that are part of the Solidarity Economy. OCF will run a participatory grantmaking process in 2023 that is collective, equitable, and transparent, stewarded by Mike Strode and based upon his work with Crossroads Fund's Giving Project, National Black Food and Justice Alliance Resource Commons Council and the New Economy Coalition Black Solidarity Economy Fund.
Open Collective Foundation has a unique role to play as steward of a legal, financial, and technical commons—a piece of shared infrastructure—that is resonating deeply with the solidarity economy movement. We can build bridges between 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsorship, the open source community (where we have deep roots), mutual aid groups (100+ are hosted by OCF today), and the movement at large. A new clarity has emerged for Open Collective Foundation: Solidarity is our guiding principle. —original announcement, July 2021
