TSC is honored to serve as the capacity building partner for Gilead Science’s TRANScend grantmaking initiative. This fund supports transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC)-led organizations working to improve the safety, health, and wellness of the TGNC community, including funding to community organizations working to end the HIV epidemic. Organizations are direct grantees of Gilead, or, for smaller grassroots trans-led organizations, grantees of Destination Tomorrow, the TRANScend grantmaking partner
As the capacity building partner for TRANScend, TSC provides capacity building and training to TGNC-led organizations that request assistance, for grantees of TRANScend, as well as organizations that are not a part of the grantee cohort. From leadership development to program management and skill-building , TSC works alongside organizations and leaders to develop and implement a plan to best serve their goals and ensure organizational sustainability. TSC is committed to ensuring that all capacity building is based on the self-determined needs of the organization or leader.
TSC is assisting grantee organizations through small group work with organizational leadership teams, as well as one-to-one training with leaders. We also organize and facilitate an annual grantee convening, with training and conversational sessions that are reflective of key issues facing TGNC communities across the U.S.
