Quick Questions

For example: how many people usually participate in your programs, come to a rally, receive services, call or drop-in to get involved...

Don't tell us how much you're hoping to raise, tell us how much you actually spent last year. It's ok to say $0 if you don't have a budget and group members pay for everything out-of-pocket.

We fund all types of groups, including groups without non-profit status.

Top 3 Focus Areas
Please share your group’s Top 3 focus areas from the list below. Please make sure to only choose 3!

We know this is hard, even impossible. We see all these issues as interconnected, too. And we know the language below might not match up with your own words. When you hold your cursor over each focus area, you will see multiple terms and examples to help you choose an option that comes closest to representing your work.

Why do we ask this? Part of TJFP’s mission is to advocate for our grantees and applicants in the funder-only spaces that activists don’t usually have access to. We want funders to understand just how big and intersectional our collective vision of trans justice is! This information will help us to educate and also push funders to both increase their giving and become more accountable to the movements they support.

Ten Questions About Your Work
Each answer can be no longer than 400 words, which is about two paragraphs. 

We'll use this description for our directory, so that's why we need it to be no more than 40 words.

What we want to understand here is how you are connected to other organizing efforts in your area.

This is just to give us a general idea of what you have in mind. You don't have to stick to it—the grant is unrestricted funds, which means you get to decide how the money is used. It's also totally fine to say you will just use this grant to support your work in general.

Additional Material (Optional)
Sometimes it's easier to show your work in action! It's not required, but it really helps us get to know you better. You can share ONE of the following:
  • One flyer or brochure, no more than 2 pages
  • Two pictures 
  • One video, no more than 5 minutes 
If you share something that is longer than the limits above, we won't be able to consider it.

Requirements for Uploading a File: 

Please make sure your file fits these requirements or unfortunately we won't be able consider it. If you're confused about any of these instructions, contact us and we'll help you figure it out!
  1. File types accepted: pdf, jpg, png, gif, mp3, mp4, mov

  2. Make sure your file name includes the file type extension (for example, .jpg or .pdf)

  3. File size limit: 5 MB (so if it's a video, you should probably share a link to it below instead)

  4. You can only upload one file, so if you are sharing two pictures, please combine them into one file first.

Our goal is to help spread the news about all the amazing work going on right now, not just what we're able to fund. We'd like to include all applicants that meet our criteria in our directory. We'd also like to share your work in our annual report, in conversations with other trans justice groups, and with potential funders. We will include your group's name, a link to your website or social media, and your city and state.

We want to promote your work! Sharing materials is one way we can help spread the word. But we also understand if what you've shared with us needs to stay private.
