Workshop: A Role for Intermediaries in Trans and Intersex Funding
Thursday, October 14
10 am EDT/ 4 pm CEST/ 5 pm EAT
Join the Trans and Intersex Funding Working Group of Global Philanthropy Project to learn about how funding through intermediaries can be used to support trans and intersex groups around the world.
The workshop will provide grantmakers with insights on how intermediaries function and how they can help shift donor-grantee power dynamics. Speakers will share examples of successful models of intermediary funding in collaboration with private foundations, high net wealth individuals, and donor governments to increase and improve trans and intersex grantmaking. Hear concrete recommendations for funder actions and best practices, and explore how funding through intermediaries can be a path to develop and expand your trans and intersex funding portfolio.
Please note: this webinar is intended for grantmakers only.

In 2021, for the first time, GPP is sharing a series of “Diving Deeper” briefs to explore a number of new analyses using the 2017–2018 Global Resources Report: Government and Philanthropic Support for LGBTI Communities (Global Resources Report, or GRR) dataset. These briefs focus on: global LBQTI funding, the role of intermediaries and government embassies in global LGBTI funding, and regional trends. As we move towards development of the next iteration of the GRR which will be published in 2022, this series further illuminates the importance of the GRR data in ongoing strategy and advocacy towards impactful resourcing of LGBTI human rights advancement and inclusive development. The “Diving Deeper” briefs are developed to serve as tools for LGBTI movements, funders, and policy makers.
Diving Deeper: Under the surface of Intermediary funding data compares data on different types of intermediaries in order to provide greater understanding to the field about how, where, and to whom intermediaries are distributing resources. The brief also examines how government, multilateral, and private foundation funders partner with intermediaries to support global LGBTI rights and development.
