Publications & Tools

We have organised our growing library of publications and tools to better serve the sex worker-led movement, funders, and allies. We have highlighted key topics that intersect with our work including participatory grantmaking, donor finders, and other work contributed from regional networks, sex worker funders, and other organisations that support sex worker rights.

Part of Human Rights Funders Network and Candid’s Advancing Human Rights research, this interactive site shows top funders and provides an overview of grantmaking by region, issue, population, and strategy.


“At CIVICUS, we know that civil society groups, organisations, movements and individual activists around the world constantly face barriers to accessing information on relevant donors and funding opportunities, that?s why we created the Donor Finder!

Donor Finder includes:
List of progressive donors offering funding and non-financial resources to civil society, including small and even informal groups and individual activists.
Simple but complete profiles, organised by geographic region, that will help you identify donors who align with your work and needs.
Annual reviewing and updating to ensure best possible information.
Available in English, French and Spanish.

All featured donors agreed to be listed in this directory. Please check back for updated versions, and email us at if you want to suggest an improvement or recommend a donor we could add to this list.”


Discover what funders are most likely to support, learn about their
interests and perspectives, and gain the knowledge you need to find
additional resources. [Note: Subscription required. FDO Essential subscriptions from $31.58/mo] View

“The Advancing Human Rights initiative tracks the evolving state of global human rights funding. It is a collaboration between Candid and Human Rights Funders Network, in partnership with Ariadne and Prospera. Our aim is to strengthen funders’ decision-making, promote collaborations, and improve the effectiveness of human rights philanthropy.”
