Together let’s raise $90k for trans justice and liberation!

What kind of future do you wish for you and your community?  What would you be willing to give to support the future of your dreams? 

This year we received 213 applications from grassroots, trans justice groups and projects led by trans and non-binary people, organizing their communities locally and nationally. The groups and projects we fund are busy working for justice and liberation for trans communities with each breath they take, all year long, and we’re honored to invite you–yes, YOU to join us in keeping our cherished trans communities well supported and resourced!

To date, TJFP has distributed more than $4.5 million dollars through our community-led grantmaking process. This has been a by us, for us effort, and it’s because of all of you who have provided so much community love and support that we are able to get all this done.

This year we’re raising 90k to celebrate 9 years of funding trans justice!

Please join us by pitching in a dollar or whatever you can to ensure our trans justice groups can not only keep their doors open and lights on, but have what they need to continue dreaming big, creating the future we all need and deserve.

So let’s raise some money together and uplift and resource our trans leaders today because, Our Future is NOW!

Funding The Revolution!

TFAAN_2016A very special thank you to Bishop Tonyia Rawls and The Freedom Center for Social Justice (FCSJ) for inviting TJFP to the Transgender Faith and Action Network’s (TFAAN) annual retreat.

What an honor it was to be welcomed into this space and to have the opportunity to speak with Southern trans and gender non-conforming faith leaders and allies about TJFP’s funding model and what trans justice looks like across the country!

Looking forward to next year!
