Recipients of our Fund have succeeded in holding their employers accountable to ethical behavior. Others have launched independent unions, started nonprofits, and co-ops. And some have catapulted their environmental justice leadership into campaigns to run for public office!
Two worker funds have been launched by the Coworker Solidarity Fund to raise and distribute money in support of workplace organizers.
Over 300 workers have received Coworker Solidarity Fund stipends. Many of them have made historic wins in their workplaces.
Over $900,000 have been disbursed by the Coworker Solidarity Fund to support workers democratize workplaces and the economy.
When you donate to our General Fund, you enable us to distribute money to either of our existing worker funds, and explore launching new ones. Part of your donation may also help cover our operations expenses, so we can continue providing infrastructure for workers who are building an economy that works for all working people.
Choose how you want to make your impact felt by donating to one of our worker funds. Thank you for your generous support—it’s what keeps us going!
No. Coworker Solidarity Fund is incorporated as a 501(c)(4) organization.

Coworker Solidarity Fund relies on contributions from individuals and philanthropic institutions. We also received in-kind support from Amalgamated Bank. You can make a donation to support our work here.
No. While Coworker Solidarity Fund, a 501(c)(4), and Coworker.org, a 501(c)(3), share vision and values in supporting worker-activists, the organizations are autonomous, financially and legally independent, and governed by separate Boards of Directors. Each does all of its own fundraising and makes its own decisions.
