2016 Grantees

Trans Justice Funding Project is a community-led funding initiative founded in 2012 to support grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people. We make grants annually by bringing together a panel of six trans justice activists from around the country to carefully review every application we receive. We center the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions.

Every penny we raise goes to our grantees with no restrictions and no strings attached because we truly believe in trans leadership. Donate to the Trans Justice Funding Project now, or donate directly to the grantees below!
