The International Trans Fund (ITF) is a participatory grant-making fund made up of trans-activists and donors. The mission of the Fund is to mobilise sustainable resources for strong, trans-led movements and collective action, and to address and eliminate funding gaps impacting trans groups across the globe. The ITF’s priorities in this funding cycle are to: (1) fund a diversity of groups, including around regions, languages, gender and other identities, strategies and issues; (2) reach trans communities facing greater levels of marginalization (e.g. racism, classism, ageism, ableism, misogyny and so on); and (3) support trans groups whose work is intersectional and contributes to social justice, movement building, and the liberation of trans people.
To be eligible for funding groups must be meet the following criteria: (1) be trans-led: the ITF defines ‘trans-led’ as trans people are in decision-making roles, including setting the organization’s strategic and financial priorities, and make up 75% of the group’s staff, spokespeople, and Board or decision-making body. If this is not the case, groups must demonstrate how trans people make budget, organizational and strategic decisions; (2) have an operating budget under $150,000; (3) be a group of people (i.e. not an individual); (4) main focus of work is to benefit the trans community; and (5) contribute to movement building, not just providing direct services.
Actions can take place worldwide.
This year the ITF is introducing two grant types: (1) SEED Grant (1-year): The SEED grant is a 1-year general support and/or project grant for trans-led organizations that have never been funded by the ITF, or that prefer to apply for this grant instead of the THRIVE Grant. Grants range from $10,000 to $25,000 USD/year; (2) THRIVE Grant (2-year): The THRIVE grant is a 2-year general support grant ONLY for trans-led organizations that have been previously funded by the ITF and are in good standing. Grants range from $25,000 to $50,000 USD/year.
The deadline to apply is December 12, 2022 at 5pm (ET/New York time).
