Through our sister organisation, The Social Change Nest, we provide two types of fiscal hosting (what is fiscal hosting?)

Fiscal hosting through Open Collective

This is our most popular option and is ideal if you’re looking for a fast way to get set up, receive grants, pay out money and transparently manage your finances through Open Collective.

Grant management fiscal hosting

This option is better suited for groups and movements that are managing very large sums of money and would like more governance support, as well as a means of employing and paying staff.

Not sure which is right for you? Get in touch.

In a few quick, easy steps, we got the ability to fundraise and pay expenses – it has made all the difference… I don’t know how we would have kept on going without it.

We take on the admin burden and process all transactions on your behalf

This means you can stay totally focused on your good work and no more time is wasted on making bank transfers, paying invoices, or reimbursing people.

You can go digital and transparent

We provide our digital fiscal hosting through Open Collective making it easy to keep transparent financial records and stay accountable to your group, funders and community.

We are ever so grateful to you for being such a wonderful support over the last 2 years. Your support enabled us to help the whole of our town of Exmouth during the pandemic, and we had almost 400 volunteers at its peak! And it has been so amazing (and an eye opener for many) to be able to show off our transparent accounting :). I personally intend to request further details from you on how I may set up my other community ventures. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Financially speaking, the Social Change Agency’s service has enabled everything we have done. It’s access to a transparent and open budget, which has allowed us our whole process of doing emergency food shops in the community. It means that we can step in and help while the council is busy sorting out individual cases
