The Transgender Strategy Fund 

TGNC communities receive less than 3 cents for every $100 of foundation funding in the US*, despite disproportionate rates of violence and homicide, HIV, poverty, and poor health outcomes.

We believe that the path to TGNC liberation must include the resourcing of TGNC organizations who have a significant impact in their communities. Our communities have the wisdom, lived experience, and tenacity to solve problems and challenges if trusted with the resources needed to end these disparities. TSC's grant making prioritizes BIPOC TGNC-led efforts in recognizing the roles of anti-blackness, racism, and misogyny in our social inequities. We are honored to work side-by-side with our donor partners to ensure that funds are reaching people in our communities in a way that is informed by experiences of TGNC leaders and activists.

TSC is able to offer capacity building at no cost to all grantees, based on their self-determined needs and vision. 

TSC is very appreciative of our generous donors who have made these funds possible: ViiV Healthcare, Levi Strauss Foundation, AIDS United, Gilead Sciences, and Robert Wood Johnson
