Open Collective Foundation and Nivenly

Clarifies there is no impact to Nivenly from the OCF wind-down

tl;dr - there is no impact to Nivenly or our operations.

The Open Collective Foundation (OCF) recently announced they will dissolve at the end of 2024. The Foundation is a fiscal host that happens to share a name with the software, Open Collective. While Nivenly does leverage the Open Collective software to manage our member list and a “front door” for donations, we do not use the Open Collective Foundation as our fiscal host. Instead, we act as our own fiscal host and are responsible for managing our own bank account, accounting ledger, and tax preparations.

Because we’re not using the Foundation as a fiscal host, there is no impact to Nivenly as a result of OCF’s actions.
