The International Trans Fund (ITF) is a participatory grantmaking fund made up of trans activists and donors. The ITF aims to increase the capacity of the trans movement to self-organize and advocate for trans people’s rights, self-determination, and wellbeing.
The ITF aims to increase the capacity of the trans movement to self-organize and advocate for trans people’s rights, self-determination and wellbeing. Our purpose is to:
- Build and sustain a mechanism to support trans-led groups of different sizes working on a range of issues at the international, regional, country, and local levels, with an emphasis on groups with access to fewer resources.
- Increase resources and enhance access to resources to support trans movements:
a. Increasing financial resources dedicated to trans-led organizations and groups through grantmaking.
b. Increasing access to non-financial resources for trans organizations, such as skills building, organizational strengthening, leadership development and activist support.
c. Increasing access to other and new donors.
- Educate our peers in the philanthropic community on trans issues and influence other funders and strategic allies in trans-related commitments and strategies.
