Red Umbrella Fund is the first global fund guided by and for sex workers. It was created in 2012. You can read more about the history here.

Red Umbrella Fund makes grants to sex worker-led groups and network in any region of the world. Red Umbrella Fund believes that change will only be achieved through strong, collaborative movements of sex workers advocating for their rights, with the support of allies. Sex workers themselves are the best positioned to know what is needed for them, and best placed to do something about it.

Red Umbrella Fund educates other funders about sex worker rights and the importance of investing in self-led organising by sex workers.
