TJFP is a community-led giving initiative supporting grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people. We’re raising funds for our 2014 grant cycle!

What We Do and Why We Do It
We started TJFP in the summer of 2012 because there was almost no funding available for local, grassroots trans justice work. We support groups run by and for trans people with budgets of $250,000 or less, and not just in the big cities on the coasts but also in small towns and rural areas across the US. We are focused on supporting the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions.
The way we give is also an important part of our work: all funding decisions are made by our activist panel from across the country. We also believe that if you really want to support grassroots work, you need to be able to fund groups that don’t have 501c3 status or a fiscal sponsor. So this year we have set up a new structure that makes it simpler for us to support not only non-profits, but unincorporated groups too.
Our first year, we received 104 applications from from Selma, Alabama to Missoula, Montana, Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine. And we raised and distributed $50,000 to 22 grantees. (You can read more about it and our incredible grantees in our annual report.) 
In February we received over 100 applications again. But this year we’re hoping to raise a total of $100,000 so that we can support even more amazing groups. We’ve been working hard on reaching our goal, but to make it there we will need your help!
Why Your Support is So Important
We’re coming together here to raise $17,000 for our 2014 grant cycle. Our operating expenses for the year have already been covered, so every dollar you give will go directly to this year’s grantees.  And the best news is: we’ve received a matching grant from a donor, so every dollar you give until April 15th will be matched up to $50,000! 
Other Ways You Can Help
As a community, we have the ability to uplift and support each other in so many ways and this project is just one example in a long-history of community-led resistance and action. For folks not able to contribute through monetary donations, there are so many other ways to help!

I woke up to some very sad news this morning. A great friend of mine, founder of For Brown Girls has passed. She’s a young legend, a major driving force in my decision to make this blog so many years ago. I had the chance to speak to this beautiful young lady and was inspired and had a chance to rethink my purpose and my power as such a small person on this earth. I saw that though I was small, I could make a big difference. Thank you for that. It gets rough but ultimately, my power can move mountains like you did. I’m keeping your loved ones in my thoughts and prayers. ~Sade [forbrowngirls ]

"I lost my husband on a Monday afternoon of April 1994, killed by a group of people that were our neighbors. I started running with my two children towards the West of the country. At each checkpoint, I was raped by soldiers. Now, I live with HIV and must raise my kids alone.” — Martha
