Funding brief: The ITF was created to mobilize sustainable resources to help build strong, trans-led movements and support collective action, and to address and eliminate funding gaps impacting trans groups across the globe. The purpose of the ITF is to:
1. Build & Sustain the Fund | 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 locallevels, with a particular emphasis on groups with access to fewer resources.
2. Resource Trans Movements | Increase resources and enhance access to resources to support trans movements, including:
Access to financial resources dedicated to trans-led organizations and groups, through grantmaking.
Access to non-financial resources for trans organizations, such as skills building, organizational strengthening, leadership development and activist support.
Access to other and new donors for trans organizations, beyond the ITF’s direct support.
3. Educate Philanthropic Community | Educate peers in the philanthropic community on trans issues and influence other funders and strategic allies in trans-related commitments and strategies.
Priorities : 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.
