Trans* and Gender Nonconforming Wellbeing: Summer 2021 Grant Report

The trans* and gender nonconforming community has been under attack as anti-trans sentiment and exclusionary policies have risen in the past two years. In Summer 2021, we distributed $50,000 in direct support grants to ten trans* and gender nonconforming leaders making wellness more accessible for their communities. Meet the recipients and download our full report for learnings, insights and opportunities to grow your own practice, or drive inclusivity at your organization's grantmaking initiatives.

Some highlights:

  • Physical space is key: 30% of applicants requested funding to create a safe, physical space to host classes, events, and community healing.
  • Investing in the community starts with the leader: 31% of grant requests supported our wellness leaders’ whole wellbeing, funding safe housing, paying off debt, and restful vacations.
  • Sliding scale pricing is transformative: 29% of applicants requested funding so that they can offer their wellness services for free to QTBIPOC,BIPOC, disabled, and/or LGBTQIA+ communities.
