What We Do

We have one project that has been running for over five years: teasecraft, a meetup group for sex/kink-positive makers, hackers, and crafters. Kit first began working in sex-positive activism by building (hilariously nerdy) sex toys, sharing their knowledge, and encouraging other people to do the same.

After experiencing a number of obstacles in Kit's own work, including having a new bank account shut down after only 30 minutes, the Effing Foundation grew out of Kit's desire to affect widespread social change beyond crafting shiny sex toys.

This page should really be called "What We Want To Do If We Had The Resources":

  • We run grant program for sex-positive artistic and/or educational endeavors, and we've awarded grants to some amazing individuals, groups, and organizations
  • Now we need to raise funds to cover the Foundation's core expenses: most notably, personnel. Kit's been working on the Foundation in one way or another for over six years without compensation, and Kit can't sustain that for much longer.
  • We can also put new funds towards more rounds of grants for sex-positive art and education! 
  • We need your donations to continue the work of the Foundation and make even more grants.

What else would we like to do? As we're able to grow the Foundation, we have a lot of ideas:
