What is OSS.Fund?
Open Source Software Fund is a catalog of monetization platforms for online creators, open source builders, and hackers. It helps all independent creators find the best monetization platform for their work. It is curated and maintained as a crowdsourced list on Github.
Where does this name come from?
The initial list is started by Bilgin Ibryam with a focus on Open Source Software Funding (hence the name OSS.Fund) but it has expanded to other areas such as writing, blogging, advertising, teaching, and other online indie industries. Any platform that offers any kind of monetization service for online creators is welcome to join in.

How to support OSS.Fund?
OSS.Fund itself is also an open source project and needs funding to exist and improve. Any funding received will be used to improve the design and usability of the website, data entry (new additions and updates), and ongoing maintenance costs. We are eating our dog food, and using a few of the listed funding platforms. Sponsor OSS.Fund on Github Sponsors or stake Dev Tokens on Stakes.Social to earn interest and support OSS.Fund.
