What is CodeFund?

CodeFund is a simple GitHub integration that allows developers to raise capital to fix issues or add new features. It creates no additional maintenance tasks, requires no marketing, and keeps the maintainer in control of their funds. The setup is extremely simple and maintainers can start collecting funds in minutes.

Community members can monitor the progress of the codefund.

Who benefits from CodeFund?

Project maintainers will receive the funds they need to continue development on their open source projects.

Project Maintainers

Funding incentivizes maintainers to dedicate more time and resources to their projects. Funds give value to the maintainer's work, providing the community with insight into the extent of their efforts. With CodeFund the burden of project maintenance is shared with the community.

Contributors will benefit because the maintainer will have more time to address pull requests.
