What makes Open Collective different?
- Full transparency of both where money comes from and where it goes.
- Completely open source.
- Designed for ongoing collaborative communities, not individual creators or one-off campaigns.
- Offers Fiscal Hosting as a service, so projects don't need to legally incorporate or figure out taxes.
