The International Trans Fund (ITF) is currently accepting applications for the fourth grant cycle. 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 ITF is a participatory grantmaking fund and they take an activist-led approach that engages trans people in the grantmaking process. This means that trans people are actively involved at every stage, from determining funding priorities to reviewing applications and making decisions about which organizations get funded. ITF wants to ensure widespread trans community participation as well as foster trans leadership and collective ownership of funding decisions.
The ITF’s priorities in this funding cycle are to:
Most grants will range between $10,000 and $30,000. Grants up to $50,000 may be considered in special circumstances. ITF does not accept applications for funding of more than $50,000 or less than $5,000.
