Technical writer payment process

Current phase:
The 2021 Season of Docs program finished on December 14, 2021. See timeline.

Google uses Open Collective to fund the open source organizations taking part in Season of Docs.

Participating organizations are strongly encouraged to use Open Collective to transfer funds directly to the technical writer, but can use a platform/method of their choice to transfer funds to technical writers and volunteers.

Technical writers should review the organization's proposed project budgets and discuss their compensation and payment schedule with the organization prior to hiring.
