Sliding Scale Considerations

Consider contributing less on the scale if you:
    • are a person who experiences discrimination and/or violence related to systematic oppression
    • have medical expenses, been denied work, or experience discrimination related to ableism
    • are an unpaid community organizer
    • are eligible for public assistance
    • have immigration-related expenses
    • are supporting children or have other dependents

Consider contributing more on the scale if you:
    • own the home you live in
    • have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money
    • travel recreationally
    • have access to family money and resources in times of need
    • work part time by choice
    • have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education, gender privilege, racial privilege, class background, etc
