Adding a Collaborator for Donations to Racial Injustice Efforts
Black Lives Matter. Threadless stands against racism.
Threadless is a diverse, global community of artists and those that support them. We join all who honor George Floyd and the countless others who've lost their lives and livelihoods to racism. We share the anger and sorrow created by the systemic racism prevalent in this world. In times like these, art plays an important role in driving progress and creating cultural change.
All Artist Shop owners now have the option to donate a portion of their proceeds to eight different organizations of their choosing. Threadless will match those donations up to an additional $100,000. These organizations exist to help bring racial justice and create a less hostile world for the Black community.
The organizations are as follows:
- Black Lives Matter
- Black Visions Collective
- The Bail Project
- Unicorn Riot
- Reclaim The Block
- Chicago Freedom School
- Color of Change
- Campaign Zero
You can now set up automatic donations right from your Artist Dashboard, choose to donate all Artist Earnings or a percentage of your profit for any design in your Artist Shop, and your donations will be matched by Threadless up to $100,000.
Adding the Donation account as a Collaborator
In the Collaborators field, enter the account name from the list below for the collaborator of your choice. Then select a percentage of the shared earnings you would like to donate for the sales of that design- any amount from 100% to 1%. This is the amount that will be matched by Threadless up to $100,000.
