Help the open source ecosystem navigate and recover from COVID-19!


  • Build a tool where open source projects and people working on open source can request money, get help, and generally work together to get through COVID-19.


This is a very active working group. Our main work takes place on the Open Collective Slack.

Our main deliverable so far is a website: We’ve also managed to raise over $115k for various open source companies, so far.
