Apply For A Grant

ITF’s 6th Grant Cycle

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.

Video Applications

To promote accessibility for all organizations, the ITF welcomes video applications. This is limited to organizations that do not have the capacity to write an application in English, French, Russian, Simplified Chinese or Spanish, but are able to provide a spoken application in one of these languages. All applications need to answer the same questions. We will require organizations to submit contact information and the budget template in writing.

The video can be a maximum of 10 minutes. Please use .mp4 and .mov formats. We appreciate and encourage videos that are “Selfie-style.” You can record yourself looking directly at your smartphone, tablet, or computer, telling us about your organization’s work. No special effects, labels, or editing are required. Videos will not be accepted if we cannot see who is speaking on behalf of the organization.
