The ITF’s 6th Grant Cycle is Now Open

The ITF is pleased to announce our 6th grant cycle! We welcome applications from trans-led organizations with budgets below $100,000 USD based in any region of the world. The deadline to apply is December 5, 2021 at 5pm (ET/New York time).

The ITF has two grant types:

  • SEED Grant (1-year)
    The SEED grant is a 1-year general support and/or project grant for trans-led organizations that have never been funded by the ITF, or that prefer to apply for this grant instead of the THRIVE Grant. Grants range from $10,000 to $25,000 USD/year.
  • THRIVE Grant (1-year)
    The THRIVE grant is a 1-year general support grant ONLY for trans-led organizations that have been previously funded by the ITF and are in good standing. Grants range from $25,000 to $50,000 USD/year.

The application forms and guidelines can be downloaded from our website (here). The forms are available in English, French, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Spanish. 

If you have questions, please contact info@transfund.org

6th Grant Cycle Opens this Week!

The ITF will launch our 6th grant cycle on October 22, 2021! This call is open to trans-led groups in all regions of the world with operational budgets of less than $100,000. 

We begin by opening the call and sharing all the necessary documents for you to apply. In the following week, we will start a series of funding webinars to share information about the ITF and our grants, and to respond to questions from trans communities.

Check below for our Funding Webinars agenda, and register for the one that is best for you. The information we provide is similar in all webinars; we only offer it in different languages and times for your convenience.

Participation in the webinars is entirely optional — you do not need to attend any of them to apply for ITF funding.

How To Apply For ITF Funding Video

The ITF created and hosted funding webinars to support trans-led groups to apply to the 5th grant cycle. For those that could not make one of our webinars, we recorded a video with our Program Officer that you can watch at any time. In the video, we share information about the eligibility criteria, funding priorities, and the grantmaking process. We also give helpful tips on how to write a strong and competitive application.

We suggest that you download the application form and guidelines to review while you follow along with the video (here).

We are accepting applications until 5 pm ET on December 4, 2020.

Meet the Donor Video

The ITF was thrilled to participate in the Global Philanthropy Project‘s ‘Meet the Donor’ session recorded in October 2020.

Mukasa, an ITF Program Officer, joined a panel of grantmakers to discuss the role they see for their institution within the funding ecosystem, and how they go about their own work as grantmakers and partners.

This video also provides a broad overview of the types of philanthropic institutions and funding flows in the LGBTI community and reviews some background information about philanthropy, fundraising, and the current state of worldwide LGBTI funding based on the 2017-2018 Global Resources Report: Government and Philanthropic Support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex Communities.
