    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.

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.

Introducing the ITF’s Third Cycle Grantee Partners

The ITF made our first grant in 2017 and since then we have disbursed $1.815 million dollars to 75 trans-led groups in 51 countries. Now we would like to introduce you to our third cycle grantee partners. These groups were selected by the ITF’s Grant Making Panel, a group of trans and gender non-conforming activists who review each eligible application that we receive to our annual call for applications.

This year we are thrilled to support 38 trans-led organizations in 32 countries. These organizations are doing incredible work on the frontlines, often in very hostile contexts and with limited resources. We are proud to support organizations that are promoting trans leadership and working intersectionally. We invite you to learn more about the ITF’s third cycle grantee partners and join us in celebrating and amplifying this powerful movement building work.
