**Tidelift** focuses on enterprise (businesses and NGOs) funding the upstream FLO software they depend on. Using [](, they propose to make complex determinations about dependencies and appropriately distribute each enterprise's donations to those projects they utilize most. They do not focus on end-user software for the general public.
**Ampled** is a music-specific patronage co-op with emphasis on artists posting bonus exclusives for patrons. At their initial beta, they take no fees and hope to only have fees be optional donations from artists. Patrons donate a minimum $3/month.
**Seed&Dew** plans a strange algorithmic model. Donors give the system $10/month, software projects get listed, somehow the time donors spend (on documentation?) per project is tracked, and the money (after the 30% cut) allocated proportionally to that.
**GitFund** from Espians (a FLO-focused idealistic organization) does monthly patronage with an emphasis on public marketing of sponsors. They emphasize institutional sponsorships while allowing individual patrons as well. Projects set a *limited number* of high-value sponsorship slots and boldly advertise their sponsors. In essence, this is just the most traditional form of advertising: static reference to generous sponsors put in prominent places in a project's public image. Although all-FLO in its own code, GitFund emphasizes integration with GitHub (which is a proprietary platform). Like and Liberapay, GitFund aims to use its own mechanism for self-funding rather than take a cut from other projects.
