Funding

Since we formed in November 2018, most of the research and analysis we have undertaken on the impact of gender self-identification on women’s sex-based rights has been done on an unpaid basis.

Over the past ten months, we have raised funds via two crowdfunders. In September 2019, we launched a crowdfunder to enable us to scrutinise the Scottish Government’s plans for reforming the Gender Recognition Act 2004.

In May 2020, we launched a smaller crowdfunder to enable us to scrutinise the Scottish Government’s draft Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill.

Crowdfunder Total amount raised Number of supporters Average donation
GRA reform £8,780 293 £28.98
Hate crime £3,220 102 £30.96

Across both crowdfunders, we raised a total of £12,000 (£11,413.75 after fees). We have also received offline donations via PayPal of £425 (£417.11 after fees).

The majority of these funds have been used to pay for our time. We have allocated the work between us based on our individual availability, paying ourselves an hourly rate of £15.
