Funding brief: The ITF is pleased to announce our second call for proposals for trans groups, collectives and networks. The ITF was created to mobilize sustainable resources to help build strong, trans-led movements and collective action, and to address and eliminate funding gaps impacting trans groups across the globe. The purpose of the ITF 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 a particular emphasis on smaller groups and/or groups with access to fewer resources.
Increase resources and enhance access to resources to support trans movements including:
– Financial resources dedicated to trans-led organizations and groups through grantmaking.
– Non-financial resources for trans organizations, such as skills building, organizational strengthening, leadership development, and activist support.
– Access to other and new donors.
Educate our peers in the philanthropic community on trans issues and influence other funders andstrategic allies on trans-related commitments and strategies.

The ITF’s priorities in this funding cycle are to:
Fund a diversity of groups, including around regions, languages, gender and other identities, strategies and issues.
Reach trans communities facing greater levels of marginalization (e.g. racism, classism, ageism, ableism, misogyny and so on).
Support trans groups whose work is inters
