Open Collective Update - April 2022
The 1k Project is a volunteer-based effort to directly connect sponsors in the USA and around the world to help Ukrainian families who have been impacted by the senseless and inhumane war 🇺🇦
We have been overwhelmed with how much support has been flooding in. 1k Project has raised 2M with Open Collective so far. We are so proud to be facilitating this important work through Open Collective Foundation 💛
Read some of the touching messages that have been received from the impacted families 🌻

What if Twitter did what Open Collective is doing? A power move to Community Ownership.
Delve into the evolving twitter ownership conundrum. How does transparency and ethics come into play? Could Open Collective be leading the way in shaping community ownership 🌻
Open Collective supports initiatives that make a positive impact on the world. To accomplish this, we must be a welcoming and safe environment, and we will not tolerate hate and discrimination, bullying and harassment, misinformation and disinformation, or disrupting the experience of others.
We incorporated a lot of community feedback in this iteration, so thanks to everyone who gave input. The guidelines will continue to evolve over time, so please share any feedback with us 🌿
Open Collective Europe Strategy
Open Collective Europe has set out to achieve the sustainability of the social and solidarity economy as well as open source technologies. Our mission is to enable initiatives to raise and spend money transparently under a common umbrella nonprofit.
"At the beginning of 2022, we shared our desire to grow the Open Collective Europe community. Our goal is to make the community more vibrant, supported and resilient. We set out to build a more comprehensive fiscal hosting service and support system for our collectives."
