Announcing New GMP Members

The ITF is delighted to introduce our 2023 Grant Making Panel (GMP). As a participatory grantmaker, we are deeply committed to the ethos of ‘nothing about us without us.’ We believe that decisions about funding should be made by those most impacted by that funding. These 8 trans activists have diverse expertise and come from across the globe. They will join the 6 current members of the GMP and are tasked with reviewing eligible applications and selecting our grantee partners, which are then ratified by the Board. The GMP is currently reviewing applications for the 7th grant cycle and these decisions will be shared in June.

We recognize the importance of having a diverse and representative panel to ensure that the funds we distribute are allocated to those who need it the most. We believe that having trans activists from all over the world on the GMP will enable us to gain deeper insights into the issues facing trans communities. This year, the GMP includes members from Benin, Colombia, France, Germany, Guatemala, Indonesia, Italy, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco, Namibia, North Macedonia, Pakistan, Slovenia, Thailand, the United States, Uruguay, and Vietnam.

We are excited to work with our new GMP members and look forward to the positive impact their involvement will have on our grantmaking process. You can read more about all current GMP members here.
