Companies can now invest in open source with GitHub Sponsors!

  • We’re launching GitHub Sponsors for companies in beta on December 8 (Tuesday) at Universe.
  • Self-service (payment via credit card or PayPal) orgs can sign up right away. During the beta, companies with invoiced accounts are not yet supported but can join a waitlist for updates.
  • Companies will be charged a 10% fee after the beta. We’re waiving the fee during the beta to thank early adopters for getting the program jump-started. After the beta, we will charge sponsors a 10% fee on top of the sponsorship amount to cover our operational costs.
  • We’ve added more discoverability with an improved Explore page.

As a sponsored developer or organization, you can create webhooks to notify your own endpoints when events related to your GitHub Sponsors listing occur. For example, a webhook can notify you when you receive a new sponsorship.

You can specify the URL where you’d like to send the POST requests and also specify which data format you’d like to receive.
