TRANSformational Impact

In the last decade, U.S. foundation funding for domestic and global trans issues increased more than eight fold - growing at three times the rate of LGBTQ funding overall. However, even at its record high of $8.3 million in 2013, the philanthropic resources provided hardly seem commensurate with the severe challenges global trans communities continue to face.

TRANSformational Impact analyzes the scope and character of foundation funding for trans issues. This report broadly covers funding for transgender communities by U.S. foundations between 2011 and 2013, some of which includes funding specifically targeted towards transgender girls and women, transgender boys and men, and gender non-conforming and gender queer people. The report devotes separate sections to funding for trans issues in the U.S. and funding for trans issues globally as well as a section on intersex funding.
