Displaying a sponsor button in your repository

You can add a sponsor button in your repository to increase the visibility of funding options for your open source project.

About FUNDING files

You can configure your sponsor button by editing a FUNDING.yml file in your repository's .github folder, on the default branch. You can configure the button to include sponsored developers in Patrocinadores de GitHub, external funding platforms, or a custom funding URL. For more information about Patrocinadores de GitHub, see "About GitHub Sponsors."

You can add one username, package name, or project name per external funding platform and up to four custom URLs. You can add up to four sponsored developers or organizations in Patrocinadores de GitHub. Add each platform on a new line, using the following syntax:

Here's an example FUNDING.yml file:

github: [octocat, surftocat]
patreon: octocat
tidelift: npm/octo-package
custom: ["https://www.paypal.me/octocat", octocat.com]

Note: If a custom URL in an array includes :, you must wrap the URL in quotes. For example, "https://www.paypal.me/octocat".

You can create a default sponsor button for your organization or user account. For more information, see "Creating a default community health file."

Funding links provide a way for open source projects to receive direct financial support from their community. We don’t support the use of funding links for other purposes, such as for advertising, or supporting political, community, or charity groups. If you have questions about whether your intended use is supported, please contact GitHub Support o GitHub Premium Support.
