Introducing our 2023 Grantees!

We are so excited to announce the 2023 TJFP Grantees!

We’re humbled and blown away by the creative, life saving, and joyous grassroots trans justice work happening across the country. We are very pleased to announce that the 2023 grantmaking team awarded $1,850,000 in grants to 258 trans-led grassroots groups throughout the United States and the U.S. Territories! Now more than ever, it is vital to support our trans communities as much as we can. For the first time since 2017, we’ve increased our grant sizes to $5,000, $7,500, and $10,000.

(From L – R:) 2023 Community Grantmaking Fellows: Mulani Jackson, Octavia Y. Lewis, Jade Lenore, Jardyn Lake, Khloe Rios-Wyatt, José A. Romero (AKA: “o”), 2023 TJFP Staff and Support Team: Cathy Kapua, Zakia McKensey, Gabriel Foster, Nicole Fernandes, Marin Watts, Demian Yoon, Christina Edwards, Brooke-Lynn Rowlands

As always, we are inspired by each and every application that was submitted. We also want to thank our 2023 TJFP community grantmaking fellows, who spent hour after hour over the last few months carefully reading and reviewing applications from 269 trans-led, grassroots groups and projects from around the country. 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, always worth it for us!

Learn more about our grantees through the list below, and continue to support trans justice in whatever ways you can. You can also learn more about past years’ grantees through our grantee map! Now more than ever, we need each other to show up for our trans communities.
