# Funding

# Receive funding

# I am an individual developer

To get funding as an individual developer, usually the best place to start is to check the available bounties at the HNSFund (opens new window) and work on projects that the community has prioritized.

# My organization contributes to open source for Handshake

You may find that HNSFund already has a bounty available for work that you are undertaking. Please be sure to check HNSFund (opens new window) for funding opportunities. Otherwise, please consider reaching out to us for a special partnership.

# Special Initiatives and Partnerships

If you are undertaking a project that is of special importance or impact to the Handshake ecosystem and you would like to partner with us directly for advisory and funding, please send your proposals to grants@handshake.institute.

# For-profit

If you are looking for funding for your for-profit company within the Handshake ecosystem, the Handshake Institute may be able to offer a grant if your company pledges to donate a certain minimum percentage of profit to support open-source development, eg. to the HNSFund (opens new window).

If you would like to partner with us directly for advisory and funding, please send your proposals to grants@handshake.institute.
