About GitHub Sponsors for open source contributors
If you provide value to an open source project, you can become a sponsored contributor to receive payments for your work.
Note: Patrocinadores de GitHub for organizations is currently in beta and subject to change.
Anyone who contributes to an open source project and has a bank account in a country supported by Stripe Connect is eligible to become a sponsored developer. Las contribuciones incluyen, entre otras, informes de errores, evaluación de propuestas, código, documentación, liderazgo, desarrollo comercial, gestión de proyectos, mentoría y diseño. If you live in a country that is not supported by Stripe Connect, you can sign up for the waitlist to participate in the beta of Patrocinadores de GitHub. For more information, see "Setting up Patrocinadores de GitHub for your user account."
There are a small number of sponsored organizations currently participating in the limited beta. Any organization that contributes to an open source project and has a dedicated bank account for your organization in a country supported by Stripe Connect is eligible to become a sponsored organization. To request access to the next beta phase for sponsored organizations, join the waitlist at Patrocinadores de GitHub. For more information, see "Setting up Patrocinadores de GitHub for your organization."
After you join Patrocinadores de GitHub, you can add a sponsor button to the open source repository you contribute to, to increase the visibility of your Patrocinadores de GitHub profile and other funding platforms. Para obtener más información, consulta "Mostrar un botón de patrocinador en tu repositorio".
Sponsored developers can create up to ten sponsorship tiers for sponsors to choose from. Each tier has its own monthly payment amount and benefits, such as receiving early access to new versions or being featured in the project's README.
Once you have a sponsor on a tier, you can't edit the price of that tier. Instead, you must retire the tier and create a new tier. Existing sponsors will remain on the retired tier until they change their sponsorship tier or cancel their sponsorship. For more information, see "Setting up Patrocinadores de GitHub for your user account," "Setting up Patrocinadores de GitHub for your organization, and "Changing your sponsorship tiers."
To supercharge community funding, GitHub created the Fondos complementarios de patrocinadores de GitHub, which matches up to $5000 USD total per sponsored developer in their first year, or 12 months, of sponsorship. During the matching period, GitHub will not charge any fees, so 100% of sponsorships will go to the sponsored developer. In the future, we may charge a nominal processing fee.
To prevent abuse, some developer sponsorship payments are not eligible for matching. For privacy reasons, GitHub can only discuss the reason a payment is not matched with the sponsor. Organization sponsorship payments are not eligible for matching.
Serás elegible para pagos a 90 días después de que la primera persona te patrocine. Payouts are sent through Stripe Connect, ACH transfer, or wire transfer to the bank account you provide while applying for Patrocinadores de GitHub. If you are paid through Stripe Connect, you will receive payouts on the 22nd of the month for your balance at the end of the previous month.
If you are paid through ACH transfer or wire transfer, you will receive payouts on the third Thursday of the month. GitHub will issue a payout to you for any month that your balance reaches $100 USD. Las contribuciones desde Fondos complementarios de patrocinadores de GitHub no cuentan para este límite.
Si tu saldo está por debajo de los $100 al finalizar el mes, el saldo se acumulará hasta la próxima vez que tu saldo esté por encima del límite al finalizar el mes. If you leave Patrocinadores de GitHub, GitHub will issue a payout for your remaining balance even if the balance is below $100.
