FTG GRANTEE PARNTER, ORGANIZACION LATINA DE TRANS EN TEXAS
The FTG plays an important role in providing significant resources to emerging trans-led groups that have had limited access to national funding streams. FTG is committed to growing with organizations and increasing their capacity and leadership development as they meet the needs of transgender, gender non-conforming and nonbinary communities. FTG provides both general support grants and organizational development grants to their grantee partners.
The FTG’s grantee partners work holistically to address the individual and collective needs of trans people, from survival to thriving to building power.
The FTG was launched in 2017 and has moved more than $9 million to trans-led organizations!
