Half a Million Thanks to You!

Together, WE DID IT!

We’re so happy and proud to announce that we exceeded our fundraising goal and raised $50,922. This means, that once again we’ll be able to distribute $500,000.00 to our grantees this year! That’s half a million dollars supporting something truly invaluable–trans justice led by grassroots, trans leadership across the country. 

 Over 200 individuals donated, which is awe-inspiring and humbling. We can’t thank you enough for all your generosity and support! We truly couldn’t do this without you.

“Being part of the 2016 funding panel had so much meaning for me, far beyond the honor of being asked to serve. I’m not sure how TJFP did it, but the mix of lived experiences in this group of panelists seemed like it had been orchestrated with great skill. We worked together — we agreed, we disagreed, and we agreed to disagree. But I don’t believe there was a moment in which I didn’t see the dedication and commitment from each of the panelists.”

-Stephanie Mott, TJFP 2016 Panelist

And don’t forget, this year we’re hoping to spread the love through resources more then ever.  If you can, please make your donation today to help us raise 50K by 5/25 for trans justice! Even $1 matters!

You made it happen with us!

It happened!  It really happened!

Last night we met our April Fundraising Campaign goal, raising just a little over $15,000.

Do you know what that means?

Because of you, TJFP donors and supporters, this weekend our community grantmaking panel will be able to move $200,000 directly to grassroots, trans-led, trans justice groups and organizations.

I repeat, this happened because of you! Thank you for believing in us for another year.

TJFP has the very BEST community and we love you everyday for it. We hope you feel as proud of all of this as we do.

Please stay tuned for pictures and updates and we roll up our sleeves to do some grantmaking.

It feels so good to be building trans justice with you, from the ground to the sky!

Don’t Stop Believing! Just $1,014 to go!

Amazing!  People are really amazing!

A huge thank you to everyone who’s already donated, reposted or tweeted about our April Fundraising Campaign.

What you can’t see from the counter on our fundraising page (because it only reflects paypal donations) is that we are now just $1,014 away from raising $15,000 in one month!

We’re on the edge of our seats with our fingers crossed that by midnight tonight we’ll have met our goal.  If you have been thinking about making a donation of $1, $5, $50 or more to support trans led, grassroots, trans justice groups and organizations around the country… here’s your chance!

Keep believing with us!

From the Ground to the Sky: TJFP’s April Fundraising Campaign

As the Trans Justice Funding Project (TJFP) enters its third grant cycle, we’re more determined then ever to continue supporting trans-led, grassroots, trans justice groups and organizations.

In February, we received a remarkable 144 applications. That’s 37% more applications than the previous year! Once again, the requests poured in from all across the country, representing a range of strategies and struggles, and a commitment to fighting against the violence, isolation, and oppression trans communities are experiencing.

In March, TJFP finalized this year’s team of trans and gender non-conforming activists who will serve as our Community Funding Panel. At this very moment, they are hard at work reviewing each and every application. Check out our 2015 panelists here!

Now that April is here, it’s time for us to ask for your help. We work on fundraising all year long, and, of course, you can always donate to TJFP any time. But we’re setting an ambitious goal to raise $15,000 before the Community Funding Panel meets on April 23rd to determine this year’s grantees. We can’t do it without you!

Over the last two years, we have been blown away by the infinite support of our donors and cheer squad. Your generosity is helping this grassroots trans justice movement grow and thrive.

If you haven’t given yet this year, will you join us again–or maybe even for the first time?–to fund the vital work and big dreams of trans-led, grassroots groups across the country? From $1 to $50,000, there’s no donation too big or too small.

Please help us get the word out about this campaign by sharing it far and wide!

Love,
TFJP
