A Very Warm Welcome to our Fifth 2019 Grantmaking Fellow, Sharyn Grayson

Not only are we feeling incredibly lucky for this opportunity to be at the table learning from this sage and powerful elder, we’re also feeling deep gratitude knowing that next week we get to work closely and collaboratively with Sharyn Grayson at this year’s grant making meeting.

What a privilege and honor to have this history maker on our team!

Sharyn has been working extremely hard reviewing every application received and remaining dedicated in spirt and service for trans communities. So with that, please help us welcome our fifth 2019 TJFP Fellow, Sharyn Grayson!

In 2006, recognizing the need for an expanded focus on innovative social justice projects and equity among community health and human services providers, Sharyn organized her own company and began operations in Oakland, CA. Today, the Nonprofit & Consumer Services Network (NPCSN) – offers a full range of professional business services and resources that launch, sustain, and support the economic growth, development, and continuity of community-based/grassroots organizations, nonprofit corporations, and small businesses that directly and positively impact the lives of all Transgender and LGBQI residents. Sharyn is CEO and Senior Consultant at NPCSN. The new home office has been relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas. Among her many achievements, she is also part of a small, but growing, list of minority Transgender women who own and operate businesses across the country.

Currently, she also serves as Chief Operations/Financial Officer at the Griffin-Gracy Educational Retreat & Historical Center (House of GG) – in Little Rock; a ‘Trans-led’ nonprofit organization she co-founded with world renowned ‘Stonewall Pioneer’, Trans Activist/Advocate, “Miss Major.”

Sharyn’s many professional business affiliations and alliances are extended across the U.S. She is a public speaker, trainer/facilitator, nonprofit business development consultant, grant writer, Transgender advocate, and highly respected ‘senior’ leader among the national TLGBQI neighborhood and healthcare community sectors.
