We function as a collective of trusted individuals who deal with different tasks around keeping the Fund going. There are various roles people can hold in the collective: from spreading information to dealing with finances.
We need some more hands to keep the work run smoother and to prevent the bulk of work to fall on a few members. If you would like to be part of the A-Fund collective, please read on. We would like to state clearly here that before you decide to apply, please consider the time and energy levels you have and ask yourself again if this is something you want to commit to right now. It’s important for us to rely on each other in the work and we also are concerned with security: the information we share is not safe if people who are not committed to the collective have access to it (even with best intentions). If your energy levels are a bit down these times (happens often with all of us), consider informing us of the possible support you can offer as a volunteer, and we will try to find a way to collaborate.

Don’t have the time or energy to be a full-time member, but still want to help? Drop us a line about what you can do for the Fund, and we will try to find a way to collaborate. We will be extremely happy to hear from designers, distro sellers and so on..
Our collective solidarity structure provides support to anarchists around the world who are persecuted or find themselves in a difficult life situation because of their political ideas or activities.
The Anarchist Defence Fund incorporates the mode of solidarity introduced by the International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund which successfully provides similar support to antifascists.
We are a collective structure because anyone who makes an annual donation of $20U.S./€20/£15 can join the decision-making body that decides if a certain request is supported by the fund. Decisions are taken online by consensus, or by a simple majority vote if consensus is not possible.
