The Freedom Fund: Galvanizing Resources to End Slavery

Commitment by

Humanity United

In 2013, Humanity United, in partnership with Walk Free and the Legatum Foundation, committed to establishing a $100 million Freedom Fund to fight modern day slavery. It is estimated that 21 million men, women, and children are currently enslaved and that slavery generates profits of over $32 billion per year. In the face of this huge challenge, current resources are both too little and too fragmented to have a noticeable effect. The Freedom Fund will strategically coordinate current resources, galvanize new donors and interested parties, and align investments so that funding is allocated with the highest impact in mind. The resulting fund will significantly augment the resources currently deployed to fight slavery, and will provide a new element of leadership to drive the sector forward.
