The ITF’s priorities in this funding cycle are to:

  • Fund a diversity of groups, including different regions, languages, gender identities, strategies and issues.
  • Prioritize trans communities facing greater levels of marginalization (e.g. racism, classism, ageism, ableism, misogyny and so on).
  • Support trans groups whose work is intersectional and contributes to social justice, movement building, and the liberation of trans people.

Eligibility Criteria

be eligible for funding groups must meet the following criteria:

  • Be trans-led:
    • Trans people must be 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.
  • Have an operating budget under $150,000 USD.
  • Be a group of people (i.e. not an individual).
  • Main focus of work is to benefit the trans community.
