About using a fiscal host to receive GitHub Sponsors payouts
When you sign up for a GitHub Sponsors profile so that you can be sponsored, you can choose whether to receive your payments in a Stripe Connect account that you control, or via a fiscal host that you already work with.
Note that you can only set up your fiscal host information at the time you sign up for GitHub Sponsors. If you originally chose to use a Stripe Connect account when you signed up for your profile, but would like to switch to using a fiscal host, please contact support.
GitHub Sponsors supports these fiscal hosts:
- Open Source Collective
- Open Collective Europe
- Software Underground
- Software Freedom Conservancy
Choosing to use a fiscal host
Once you navigate to the "Join the waitlist" profile setup page for the account you want sponsored, you will see the "How you receive payouts" or "Organization bank account" section, depending on which type of account you are setting up. For more information on how to sign up for a GitHub Sponsors profile, see "Setting up GitHub Sponsors for your personal account" or "Setting up GitHub Sponsors for your organization."
Under "How you receive payouts" or "Organization bank account", select the Use a fiscal host or This organization is using a fiscal host option.
Use the Select a fiscal host dropdown to choose the fiscal host you want to use.
In the text box under "Fiscal host project profile URL", type the URL to your profile page on the fiscal host's site. This helps us verify that you are indeed registered with the fiscal host.
