Expense policies

Our payouts are processed twice a week. We endeavor to pay within 7 days of an expense being approved by the admin of the Collective, provided all required information is included and correct. We make payments via ACH bank transfer and can only make payouts to countries served by our payment processor, Wise. You are not required to upload an invoice document as the data you submit in the expense form is sufficient. If you want to include an uploaded invoice, please make it out to Collective name, Open Collective Foundation, 440 N. Barranca Avenue #3717, Covina, CA 91723 USA.  OCF cannot reimburse payments made via electronic benefits transfer (EBT).

Sunnyside & Woodside Mutual Aid reimburses expenses according to our budget. Receipts or invoices are required, and you should generally only submit expenses if you have been in touch with our Community Aid Coordinators or you are actively involved as a SWMA member working on projects related to our approved expenses. If you are unsure about an expense, you can email us at mail@swma.nyc.

To submit an expense:

  • Select "Reimbursement"
  • Enter details for your bank or PayPal account
  • Enter your "expense title"—this should be a brief description of what was purchased but should not include any private information, e.g. "groceries/PPE for neighbor," or "produce for 11/27/2020 pantry"
  • Upload your receipt
  • Click "Next →"
  • In the "Add notes 🔒 (optional)" field, note your name and any additional information that will help SWMA admins recognize the expense, such as the name of the neighbor for whom groceries/supplies were purchased
