Ethical alternatives to Patreon


An easy-to-use, free open donations platform, it lets your fans send you a set amount every week, month or year.

Unlike commercial platforms, Liberapay is open source and is itself also funded through crowdfunding, so it does not take a cut of your donations.

Open Collective

Open Collective is a more advanced platform specially designed for crowdfunded projects and organisations that want to be as transparent as possible about how donations are spent.

It lets projects accept both one-time and recurring donations/sponsorships, but also lets them give detailed open accounts of expenditure, and helps members of the project file or discuss expenses.
