As stated in our mission, OpenSats is a 501(c)(3) public charity that aims to support and maintain a sustainable ecosystem of funding for free and open-source projects and contributors.
As opposed to most other charities, OpenSats does not take a cut from funds raised for open-source projects. This means that all donations to the general fund and specific, mission-aligned FOSS projects are 100% passed through to OpenSats grant recipients. We try our best to find donor-matching partners that cover the transaction fees that are incurred with each donation, regardless of payment method. Please reach out if you want to help us cover these costs.
We are committed to being 100% passthrough for all donations made on our platform. To this day, our operational, legal, and payment processing fees have been graciously and privately funded by our generous donors.
Please consider donating to our Operations Budget, which helps cover our basic operational expenses (which we try to keep to a minimum) so we can ensure that all donations intended for Bitcoin and FOSS projects remain 100% passthrough.
