The Sex Worker Giving Circle (SWGC) is very excited to announce the launch of its 2019 call for proposals - The SWGC Fellows plan to make at least $300,000 in grants this year to organizations that are by-and-for sex workers across the US, including 2-year grants.

About the Sex Worker Giving Circle
The Sex Worker Giving Circle (SWGC) launched in the spring of 2018: it is the first-ever sex worker-led fund housed at a U.S. foundation. The SWGC was created because sex workers are best positioned to confront and transform the oppressive conditions of their own lives. However, movements led by sex workers and people with experience in the sex trade are critically under-resourced despite increasing political attacks. 

The SWGC is a cross-class, multiracial, intergenerational giving circle made up of a group of Fellows who are women, queer, and trans folks with current or past experience in the sex trade. The Fellows make all high-level funding decisions and funding recommendations.
