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.

Joining Patrocinadores de GitHub
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. For more information, see "Setting up Patrocinadores de GitHub for your user account."
After you become a sponsored developer, 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. For more information, see "Displaying a sponsor button in your repository."
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. For a list of supported countries, see "Submitting your bank and tax information." 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."
Los programadores patrocinados pueden crear hasta diez niveles de patrocinio para elegir. Cada nivel tiene su propio pago mensual y sus propios beneficios, como recibir acceso temprano a nuevas versiones o figurar en el README del proyecto.
Una vez que tienes un patrocinio en un nivel, no puedes editar el precio de ese nivel. Por el contrario, debes retirar el nivel y crear un nuevo nivel. Los patrocinadores existentes permanecerán en el nivel retirado hasta que cambien su nivel de patrocinio o lo cancelen. 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 sponsorship payments are not eligible for matching. For privacy reasons, GitHub can only discuss the reason a payment is not matched with the sponsor.
You will be eligible for payment 90 days after the first person sponsors you. After this period, GitHub will issue a payment to you for any month that your balance reaches $100 USD. Contributions from the Fondos complementarios de patrocinadores de GitHub do not count towards this threshold.
Payments 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 payments 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 payments on the 3rd Thursday of the month.
If your balance is below $100 at the end of the month, the balance will accrue until the next time your balance is above the threshold at the end of the month. If you leave Patrocinadores de GitHub, GitHub will issue a payment for your remaining balance even if the balance is below $100.
