Expense policies

This fund is intended to support anyone who has lost work at the University of Birmingham due to coronavirus-related cuts to precarious contracts, including Postgraduate Teaching Assistants, Teaching Fellows, and academic-related staff whose contracts or hours have been cut. We are accepting applications, in the first instance, throughout the month of September 2020.

To apply for the fund, you'll need to fill out the form here:

At the end of the application period, we'll work out how much we can offer each applicant on the basis of how much they need and how much money we've raised. We'll then invite applicants to "submit an expense" via the Open Collective platform, which will allow us to transfer money straightforwardly, without asking for bank details or anything like that. Please don't "submit an expense" until we've sent you an email asking you to do so.


How do I get paid from a Collective?
Submit an expense and provide your payment information.
How are expenses approved?
Collective admins are notified when an expense is submitted, and they can approve or reject it.
Is my private data made public?
No. Only the expense amount and description are public. Attachments, payment info, emails and addresses are only visible to you and the admins.
When will I get paid?
Payments are processed by the Collective's Fiscal Host, the organization that hold funds on their behalf. Many Fiscal Hosts pay expenses weekly, but each one is different.
Why do you need my legal name?
The display name is public and the legal name is private, appearing on receipts, invoices, and other official documentation used for tax and accounting purposes.
