[^open-collective-fee]: Open Collective software is designed to be self-hostable, but for having them host, they charge 5% fee for the software hosting and 5% fee for fiscal sponsorship.
**Tidelift** focuses on enterprise (businesses and NGOs) funding the upstream FLO software they depend on. Using [libraries.io](https://libraries.io), they propose to make complex determinations about dependencies and appropriately distribute each enterprise's donations to those projects they utilize most. They do not focus on end-user software for the general public.
**GitFund** from Espians (a FLO-focused idealistic organization) is simple monthly patronage with an emphasis on public marketing of sponsors. They emphasize institutional sponsorships while allowing individual patrons as well. Projects set a *limited number* of high-value sponsorship slots and boldly advertise their sponsors. In essence, this is just the most traditional form of advertising: static reference to generous sponsors put in prominent places in a project's public image. Although all-FLO in its own code, GitFund emphasizes integration with GitHub (which is a proprietary platform). Like Snowdrift.coop and Liberapay, GitFund aims to use its own mechanism for self-funding rather than take a cut from other projects.
**Rocket Fuel**: British music-focused site provides a small set of fixed subscription levels with strong emphasis on perks. One-time donations also included. Also provides an online store selling merchandise for artists. They present goals as "missions" that look like threshold campaigns but just represent funding milestones and have no deadline or threshold.

### Online services
Online services must meet the [Open Software Service Definition ![open service logo](/assets/external/open-service.png)](http://opendefinition.org/software-service)
and should otherwise abide by the [Franklin Street Statement on Freedom and Network Services](http://autonomo.us/2008/07/14/franklin-street-statement).
and should otherwise abide by the [Franklin Street Statement on Freedom and Network Services](https://wiki.p2pfoundation.net/Franklin_Street_Statement_on_Freedom_and_Network_Services).
Overall, online services should relate in a fundamental way to networking and communication and not merely substitute for products that would be equally effective when run locally and offline.^[The GNU.org article [*Who does that server really serve?*](https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/who-does-that-server-really-serve.html) is useful for further consideration. That article describes the problems with Service as a Software Substitute (SaaSS).]
