“We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings.”
Ursula Le Guin
How we fund our work
- Paying clients
GFSC studio works with paying clients and on grant-funded projects. As a collective we also strive to take on worthy projects that don’t necessarily come with a source of funding, often those bought to our attention by members of the collective.
The money we make from our studio work firstly pays our wages and expenses, and anything left over helps fund members of the collective to work on these vital projects that do not come with a source of financial support.
Some of these projects are completed by members of the collective on an entirely voluntary basis, but many of them call for an amount of time and skill that requires reimbursement. We also need to fund things like software and server costs for these projects.
The small profits we make as a studio aren’t enough to enable us to fully realise this important work, and so we welcome donations from those who are interested in supporting us and our upcoming projects of this nature.
Upcoming projects we want to fund
Activist safety zine
We welcome donations from anyone who is interested in our work and would like to help us continue it. Your donations will directly support overlooked and under-funded communities across the UK and around the world.
We are known for our trans-positive, anti-racist, community-led projects, and seek backers who share our politics and mindset, and want to be part of what we’re striving to build — a better world, with better tech.
