The Social Change Nest Response to the dissolution of Open Collective Foundation

Yesterday (28 February 2024), the Open Collective Foundation (OCF) announced that it is going to close, effective from December 31 2024. They are beginning a staged dissolution process that will allow their collectives the time to close or transition their work.


Rest assured, this does not affect any of the groups we fiscally host. 


Despite their shared names, Open Collective Foundation is a separate entity to Open Collective Inc., which is the company that provides the software and platform for The Social Change Nest. The Open Collective platform remains unaffected and will continue operations as usual. You can read more about Open Collective Inc.’s response to the closure of OCF here. 


We wanted to take the time to express our gratitude to the team at Open Collective Foundation for their pioneering work in fiscal hosting in the US, that has inspired the movement in Europe and across the UK. 


Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns about this. You can reach out to Saoirse (Community Development Officer) and Mei Yee (Programme Assistant) at
