GitHub Sponsors

Invest in the software that powers your world

The sponsorship flow includes your support going directly to the maintainer and projects you love.

A new way to contribute
to open source

The sponsorship flow includes your support going directly to the maintainer and projects you love.

Invest in the open source projects you depend on. Contributors are working behind the scenes to make open source better for everyone—give them the help and recognition they deserve.

Open source is an integral component of Stripe’s software supply chain, providing distribution that meets our users where they are and extending our platform to its fullest potential.

Maintainers can set goals to let you know their level of funding and what impact it makes.
@katmeister’s goal is to dedicate more time to open source $15,000 a month
When I reach this goal, I’ll be able to quit my day job and work on open source full-time.
