About FreeFrom

The FreeFrom team is made up of queer, trans, im/migrant, and BIPOC survivors. We envision a world in which all survivors are able to build the wealth and financial security necessary to support their individual, intergenerational, and community healing—enabling them to thrive.

OUR WORK CULTURE

Here’s how our team is putting our values into action to support financial security, well being, and safety for employees within our organization:

  • FreeFrom offers a minimum annual salary to full-time employees of $80k.
  • Our social enterprise, GIFTED by FreeFrom, pays store employees $28.85 hourly.

Staff salaries are set based upon the following principles:

  1. FreeFrom is focused on building financial security and our work is based on the fact that healing is incredibly expensive.
  2. We are committed to hiring QTBIPOC folks and survivors and supporting their healing. Several members of our team are first-generation college attendees with no generational wealth to their name.
  3. We know that most employees spend an average of 8 hours a week while at work worrying about money. Paying well is good for productivity.
  4. The nonprofit movement is not sustainable and the high burnout and turnover that comes from underpaying staff costs nonprofits money in productivity gaps, rehiring costs and training costs. We eliminate those by paying well in the first place.
