WHEN WILL FUNDS BE DISTRIBUTED?
Please be patient with us as this is small operation and all our collective members are volunteers working to their best capacity

IN WHICH WAYS CAN FUNDS BE SENT?

WE CANNOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SEND USING VENMO


HOW IS OUR INFORMATION USED?

We keep a private log of emails and amounts sent for our own financial records. We do not share this with any third party. Not funders, subscribers or anyone else. This is solely for our records.


DO I NEED TO COMMIT TO ANYTHING TO RECEIVE FUNDS?

No, we give out funds to the community as we have available. There is no need to commit to anything for the group. We only ask that if you are able you give a thank you on social media and contribute back into the fund and the community where you can, if you can
We welcome volunteers and new member regularly. If you would like to do so please reach out to us. We only ask that you commit to what you have capacity for. All skill levels and skill sets are welcomed updated 4/21/2022

WHO CAN RECEIVE FUNDS?

Any current or former Black Sex Worker. In rare instances will funds be distributed outside of this umbrella. These funds are typically for Black Sex Workers in the U.S. but as a global organization, where needed, we will distribute outside of this jurisdiction where funds are available.



DISCLAIMER: The BSWC and its coalition members are all also community members. It puts us at financial and tax liability risk to send funds outside of the organizational bank account. Please consider this when requesting funds outside of the designated ways we can send. Updated 4/21/2022
