The Center for the Cultivation of Technology is a "backend provider" for the Free Software community. Affiliated projects use the legal entity to collect donations and to manage their budgets and assets, while we take care of organizational matters such as accounting, reimbursements and financial reporting.
The Center aims to become a lightweight scalable fiscal sponsorship "host", much like a "payment processor for unincorporated projects". But in most cases, we work closer with projects to identify funding opportunities, provide additional services (together with partner organizations), exchange knowledge about sustainable organizational development, and allow developers to focus on what they do best: write code.
