Borealis Philanthropy Invites Applications for COVID-19 Collective Fund for Trans Communities

With a goal of getting financial resources to trans-led organizations and transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary communities who are organizing in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Borealis Philanthropy’s Fund for Trans Generations, Destination Tomorrow’s TRANScend Community Impact Fund, and Third Wave Fund have launched the COVID-19 Collective Fund for Trans Communities.

Activities supported by the collective include but are not limited to mutual aid and care support networks; healing and virtual wellness spaces; online/virtual programming needs; living stipends for members and/or staff; basic needs (i.e., food, rent support, shelter, utilities; and organizing and advocacy. Funders will review applications on a weekly basis and collectively decide how to resource prospective grantees.

The fund will adhere to the Trans Justice Funding Project definition of trans-led, which holds that the majority of the people in charge of the group identify as trans or gender non-conforming; priority will be given to trans-led organizations with a racial justice focus. Requests are encouraged from black, Indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC).

Grants of up to $10,000 will be made, with larger grants to be made on a case-by-case basis.

See the Borealis Philanthropy website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
