Freedom Founders Program

Why become a Freedom Founder? Because Walk Free operates with a small team, mobilising a community of 8 million. We’ve launched over 120 anti-slavery campaigns, convincing governments, corporations and organizations like the United Nations to say “Yes!” to changes which make ending slavery possible.

We invite you to become a Freedom Founder, a membership program* where donors commit to a sustainable monthly or significant yearly donation to cover our operating budget. This includes our staff’s salaries, office space, travel and basic operations. Your support lets our team focus on what we do best: stopping modern slavery. As a Freedom Founder, you’ll join other everyday heroes who have made ending slavery a priority in their lives.


  • Transparent reporting on our efforts and exclusive updates from our CEO, Joe Schmidt
  • Access to online member meetups and other rewards
  • Resources to share with your business, friends, family, church or civic group
  • Joining the leadership of the movement to end modern slavery
