CFWheels Joins Open Source Collective


We are happy to announce that CFWheels has joined Open Source Collective. According to their website, Open Collective enables all kinds of groups to raise, manage, and spend money transparently. We’re also in good company in the collective. Other projects hosted by the Open Source Collective include Lucee, WebPack, PHP Foundation, Vue, LinuxServer, ESLint, Bower, Svelte, and the list literally goes on and on.

So what does this mean for CFWheels. Well, it allows us to finally be able to accept donations from our community. Many of you have offered your donations to us in the past but we really had no good way to do accept them legally. Plus we felt strongly that as an open source project we needed to adopt an open and transparent accounting practices. As a member of the collective, you’ll be able to donate and see every dollar we raise and what it is spent on. Creating a sustainable ecosystem is important for the long term viability of the CFWheels project. So how do you donate, visit Open Source Collective directly or any of our GitHub projects and look for the Sponsor this project link in the right side bar.

We’ve already received our first monthly donation and we are truly grateful. These funds will allow us to offer bounties for small issues or bugs, commission larger works, and pay for marketing, logo, or branding services.
