About the Cooperative Model

As a cooperative, Guilded is owned by its members. While our staff manage the day-to-day operations of Guilded, Guilded’s members provide the vision and direction. By becoming a member of Guilded you get a tangible say in Guilded’s governance and a patronage account that grows in value as Guilded grows. We have worked hard to make sure that the process of becoming a member of Guilded is a simple and low time commitment process. If you still aren’t sure if becoming a member of Guilded is right for you, that’s ok! You can still use Guilded to process your contracts, without becoming a Guilded member.

Guilded builds the agency, decision-making and economic power of freelancers. We offer invoicing, tax preparation, health care and advocacy support so that you can focus on doing what you do best.
