Frequently asked questions
How do I apply for a monetary gift?
Please email us at email@example.com with the following information:
Once my request has been approved, how do I receive the funds?
We are currently able to distribute funds via Venmo, PayPal or CashApp. Due to Covid-19, in-person distribution may not be available or extremely delayed.
I'd like to send a monetary gift to help the fund. What are your options?
We accept monetary gifts via Venmo, Paypal and cash app. We have monthly options via Paypal if you'd like to become a regular gift giver.
I sent you a message but I haven't heard back yet...
There are only a few of us currently running Sweet. We typically respond to messages on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. If it's a funding request, we try to get to it quicker but due to our own obligations, we may not see it right away. If it's something other than a funding request, response times may be a bit longer. We'll try to get back to you as soon as we can and appreciate your patience and understanding.
Do you offer grants to sex workers outside of Tucson?
At this time we are only able to offer micro-grants to workers in Pima County. If you reside just outside of Pima County and are wondering if you qualify, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there a limit to how much money I can ask for?
Yes, monetary gifts are limited up to $50 for cis white workers and up to $150 for workers of color and queer/trans workers. This amount fluctuates depending on the health of the fund. If we have limited funds available, the gift cap may be reduced to sustain the fund and make funding available to more recipients.
What if I require financial assistance beyond what I've received from Sweet?
I'm interested in becoming a member, volunteering or offering my time/skills. How can I help?
At this time, all of our essential internal roles are filled, but we occasionally need help with other things like outreach, volunteer opportunities and fundraising/event set up. Please e-mail us at email@example.com and we would love to discuss our current needs with you!
Are you a non-profit organization?
We are NOT a non-profit organization. We are a grassroots mutual aid collective operating completely out of our own pockets. Everyone in the collective is a volunteer. 100% of monetary gifts received goes directly to our receipients. Our operating costs, which are extremely low, are costs that collective members cover out of our own pockets.
