Announcing TJFP’s 2022 Grantees!

We’re pleased to announce that in our tenth year of grantmaking, TJFP’s 2022 grantmaking fellows awarded $1.25 MILLION dollars in grants to 204 trans-led grassroots groups, projects, and organizations doing amazing, creative, and groundbreaking trans justice work across the US and US territories. Including the groups that received a ReUp for this year, that’s $1.9 million dollars going out to 355 groups. Find out more through our 2022 grantee directory page, and see the full list below!

We blew our spring fundraising goal out of the water! We hoped to raise $250,000 by May 27th, and thanks to our incredible community of supporters and donors, we raised nearly three times that amount.

From that abundance, TJFP’s 2022 Community Grantmaking Fellows chose to do something extraordinary and beautiful. They split the $1.25 million dollars that was raised for this grant cycle equally among the groups selected. This means that each grantee is receiving the same grant amount, $6,127.45. And because of the generous giving of our community, and two very large last minute unexpected donations, we also chose to give an extra cash gift to each of the 204 grantees.

To honor ten years of grassroots trans justice, and as added support in our tumultuous and challenging political climate, we’ll be giving each of the 2022 grantees a gift of an additional $3,872.55. Yup, you read that right…. All 204 groups selected by the 2022 grantmaking panel will be getting a TJFP grant for $6,127.45 and an extra cash gift of $3,872.55. So, in total, each group is receiving $10,000 dollars from TJFP in our tenth year of grantmaking!!

Over the past few months, the 2022 community grantmaking fellows spent hour after hour carefully reading and reviewing hundreds of applications from trans-led, grassroots groups and projects from around the country. As a cohort of trans, BIPOC organizers and activists, TJFP’s fellows have the opportunity to sit in the powerful role of grantmaker, a power often held by people and institutions outside of their communities. Yet since our fellows belong to trans and non-binary communities in the very places we see applications coming in from, this position can also come with the heavy weight of tough funding decisions. Our fellows do this highly emotional work with a whole lot of heart: reviewing applications using an intersectional lens, paying close attention to where resources are being redistributed geographically, and doing this with no strings attached and trusting that TJFP grantees know what’s best for their own communities.

Our Community Grantmaking Fellows, grantmaking coordination team, and staff are deeply grateful and proud of all that TJFP has accomplished this year. Whether you fundraised on our behalf, shared our social media posts, donated, or used your platforms to lift up grassroots trans organizing, you helped make this happen! Along with the 148 groups that received a ReUp grant this year, we’re moving over $2.7 million dollars in grants to 352 groups in 2022!Of our 204 grantees selected in May…

  • 105 grantees were first-time applicants to TJFP.
  • 87 had no nonprofit status.
  • 10 grantees come from outside of the lower 48 states, including Puerto Rico and other US territories.
  • 171 grantees indicated BIPOC leadership–with 79 groups indicating they were led by Black trans women or femmes!

We are so grateful for this year’s team and for the time and energy that was poured into every part of this process. While community-led grantmaking isn’t always quick and easy, it’s always worth it for us!

It’s because of this team and our amazing community that we were able to give so much money to so many incredible grassroots trans justice groups. As always, we are inspired by each and every application that was submitted.

Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being part of the legacy of our trans justice movements.

We hope that as you look through all the amazing trans justice groups that were funded this year, and explore our map of TJFP’s applicants and grantees over the last ten years, you find some hope and solace amongst everything that’s going on.
