We fund grassroots trans-led groups organizing and fighting for trans justice in the U.S. and U.S. Territories.
Community-led means trusting and supporting trans leadership. We keep our grant process simple and quick and we believe that a short application—and a wise and experienced activist panel to read it—is all it takes to make informed funding decisions. We give unrestricted funds because we think our grantees know best how to use that money.

TJFP’s commitment to funding grassroots community work for and by trans and gender non-conforming people is unparalleled. In a movement that so often reduces us to talking points, TJFP takes an alternative, more dignified approach by investing in the dynamic leadership of TGNC communities. In a political climate of escalating violence and discrimination against TGNC people, resourcing local community organizing is absolutely essential.
