Einen Open-Source-Mitwirkenden unterstützen

Du kannst monatlich wiederkehrende Zahlungen an einen Entwickler oder eine Organisation machen, welche ein für Dich wichtiges Open-Source-Projekt entwirft, erstellt oder unterhält.

Anyone can sponsor accounts on behalf of their own user account. Organization owners and billing managers can sponsor accounts on behalf of their organization.

Note: Sponsoring on behalf of an organization is currently in beta and subject to change.

About sponsorships

You can sponsor anyone with a sponsored developer profile or sponsored organization profile on behalf of your user account or an organization. You can choose from multiple sponsorship tiers, with one-time or monthly payment amounts and benefits that are set by the sponsored account. Dein Sponsoring wird das bestehende Rechnungsdatum, die Zahlungsmethode und die Bescheinigung Deines Kontos teilen.

You can sponsor an account on behalf of your user account to invest in projects that you personally benefit from. You can sponsor an account on behalf of your organization for many reasons.

  • Sustaining specific libraries that your organization's work depends on
  • Investing in the ecosystem you rely on as a organization (such as blockchain)
  • Developing brand awareness as an organization that values open source
  • Thanking open source developers for building libraries that complement the product your organization offers

You can use a credit card to sponsor an account on GitHub. If your organization wants to pay by invoice, contact us.

GitHub Sponsors erhebt keine Gebühren für das Sponsoring von Benutzerkonten, so dass 100% dieser Sponsorenbeiträge an den unterstützten Entwickler oder die unterstützte Organisation gehen. The 10% fee for sponsorships from organizations is waived during the beta. Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter „Informationen zur Abrechnung für GitHub Sponsors“.

When you sponsor an account using a credit card, the change will become effective immediately. If you're starting a monthly sponsorship on behalf of your user account, you'll immediately be charged a prorated amount for the time until your next regular billing date. If you're sponsoring on behalf of an organization, you can choose to pay the prorated amount or make the full monthly payment.

You can designate which email address receives updates from the accounts your organization sponsors. For more information, see "Managing updates from accounts your organization sponsors."

If the sponsored account retires your tier, the tier will remain in place for you until you choose a different tier or cancel your subscription. Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter „Sponsoring heraufstufen“ und „Sponsoring herabstufen“.

If the account you want to sponsor does not have a profile on GitHub Sponsors, you can encourage the account to join. Weitere Informationen findest Du unter „GitHub Sponsors für Dein Benutzerkonto aufsetzen" und „GitHub Sponsors für Deine Organisation aufsetzen."

Sponsoring ist in der Regel nicht steuerlich absetzbar, kann es aber in einigen Fällen sein. Es liegt in der Verantwortung des unterstützten Open-Source-Mitwirkenden– nicht von GitHub— die Sponsoren darüber zu informieren, ob die Sponsorenbeiträge an eine steuerbefreite Einrichtung (Beispiel USA: 501(c)(3) Title 26 USC) geleistet werden und somit steuerlich absetzbar sein könnten.

Hinweis: GitHub ist nicht dafür verantwortlich, wie Entwickler sich selbst darstellen, noch befürwortet GitHub irgendwelche unterstützten Open-Source-Projekte. Sämtliche Aussagen liegen in der alleinigen Verantwortung des Entwicklers, welcher die Beiträge erhält. Vergewissere Dich, dass Du einer Person vertrauen kannst, bevor du eine Unterstützung offerierst. Weitere Informationen findest Du unter „GitHub Sponsors Zusatzbedingungen".
