Not sure if this fits, but while looking for a solution for snikket.org I stumbled upon The Donatinator, which is a self-hosted open-source donations portal. It was featured on the Gitlab blog last year: https://about.gitlab.com/blog/2019/02/06/donatinator-open-source-donation-platform/

It still seems a little rough around the edges, and looks like it could do with some funding itself :-) - but I plan to test it out.

That looks pretty interesting. Thanks for sharing!

Certainly a great fit. Thanks @MattJ for a lovely entry! Pls keep them coming. I soon hope to have time to give this list a boost after searching the webs for anything I can find.

Mozilla Foundation also has some fundings. But it seems you need a "mentor" from inside Mozilla to get a grant:

Each grant made needs a champion inside Mozilla, someone known to our community.

Thanks @izzy .. Yeah, I will need to do some pondering on Mozilla. They have multiple funding options. I like them, but don't like their own funding model, let's say :)

Looks like a good list, but amongst the open standards I'd add IETF's recent payto: URI scheme: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc8905

This looks like a great one to investigate:
https://calmfund.com/shared-earnings-agreement

"Why use a Shared Earnings Agreement

  • A SEAL aligns incentives of both founder and investor to build a healthy profitable business that goes the distance. If you want to build the next $25m/year profitable, growing, calm business with happy customers and healthy employees, a SEAL makes that a success for founders and investors.

  • A SEAL creates zero pressure for founders to raise further rounds of financing or sell the business, while also keeping those options on the table if the founder chooses.

  • The Shared Earnings Threshold explicitly acknowledges that founders and employees have a livelihood, family obligations and a life outside of their business, without also letting investors set your salary. This is business, we’re investing and need to earn a return, but we believe that stress, burn out and overwork are more likely to kill your startup than not having your customer acquisition funnel fully optimized."

Reminds me of something I've stumbled upon lately: Comradery:

Independent artists, creators, workers, and activists can create posts, videos, photos and more to offer to supporters for a monthly subscription. As a co-op, we are something truly new- all creators cooperatively own and democratically control Comradery together.

Though they consider themselves the "better Patreon", reading between the lines.

And then there's also the Houdini Project if you want to self-host your solution:

Houdini is an all-in-one fundraising platform developed in Ruby on Rails. It’s licensed under AGPL/LGPL and is available, without cost, to anyone in the world. Houdini allows you to quickly build and deploy anything from simple donation forms for individual nonprofits, to fully featured crowdfunding sites for startups. Developers from around the world are collaborating to make fundraising infrastructure better for everyone. Join our friendly and helpful community, or contact us if you have a project in mind.

Nice entries @strypey and @izzy .. I previously had added Comradery (found via @blindscribe on fedi) to payment systems, because that was in their description. Will figure that out once I finally dedicate the time to transfer this issue to the list.

LOL… IIRC, that was my souce for Comradery, too – at least somewhere on Fedi, not sure exactly where.
