The Guilded Freelancer Cooperative is a nascent cooperatively-owned platform and hub for freelancers, designed to provide freelancers access to the benefits of the social contract provided by traditional employment. Guilded is currently incubated by the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives. 

Since 2004, the USFWC has leveraged the collective bargaining, scale, and organizing power of a national membership structure to pool benefits and build political and social influence for its members. Now, through the Guilded freelancer cooperative, the USFWC is using its expertise to bring the power of pooled benefits, collective purchasing, and collective advocacy to freelance and gig economy workers.  

Guilded provides: 

  • contract management
  • invoicing
  • guaranteed payments  
  • tax preparation 
  • access to supplementary health care
