A Note From My Mother


TJPF director, Gabriel Foster with his mother and TJFP donor, Consuela Foster

As the director of the Trans Justice Funding Project please bare with me as I take a moment to get a little personal.

Yesterday I received this message from my mother, one of the biggest supporters I have ever had.

She wrote, “Count me in. I will donate today. I look forward to being able to help the trans communities throughout this country find the services & opportunities so desperately needed in their lives daily to have a safe & fair living environment. May TJFP be in our lives for a long, long time.”

I’m sharing this with you because I think this is an extraordinary example of what trans justice looks like. Sometimes trans justice means marching in the streets, getting our people organized and fighting for big wins. And sometimes trans justice is being and ally that wants to make sure trans communities have what they need to survive.

TJFP excepts donations all year round but as we are approaching the end of our April Fundraising Campaign, please consider helping us make our $15,000 goal by THIS THURSDAY.

Every little bit goes a long way!

Yikes! Anti-Gay Indiana Pizzeria Receives $840,000 in donations.

n-PIZZA-large570Nope, that’s not a headline from the Onion satirical newspaper.  Sadly, it really happened.

Memories Pizza, the Indiana restaurant that said it would refuse to cater gay weddings under the state’s controversial religious freedom law, has raised more than $800,000 from supporters.

Can you imagine how much impact the trans justice movement could have if we could also raise that kind of money in a matter of days?

Please consider making a donation to support the Trans Justice Funding Project’s April fundraising campaign.  $1, $5, or $50.  No amount is too small to fund trans led, grassroots, trans justice work today!

The TJFP April Fundraising Campaign is LIVE!

Help TJFP Raise $15,000 by April 23rd!


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!
