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 will be covered for costs which support and progress either the Kola Nut Collaborative timebank or expansion of timebanking practice in the Chicagoland region, for example and non-exhaustively:
- Training and education of timebanking ambassadors in new facilitation techniques;
- Programming proposals from timebank members, our organizational partners, or neighborhood networks;
- Hardware purchases and upgrades which support the development of the Kola Nut Collaborative;
- Software purchases, upgrades, and licenses which support the development of the Kola Nut Collaborative;
- Program or project management staff for related programming proposals;
- Hosting and SaaS/PaaS etc. charges related to the project.
Expenses should be discussed via email (email@example.com) and nominally approved, and normally prior to any purchases being made, before being submitted to the Collective.
You must upload a valid receipt or invoice clearly showing the total amount, date, legal address, and what the payment is for.
