Fund for Trans Generations


The Fund for Trans Generations (FTG) was created by a diverse group of funders to ensure that frontline trans activists and organizations have the financial resources and engagement needed to advance the safety, security and rights of trans people. The Fund’s grantmaking is informed by and responsive to trans communities and movements. The current funders are Arcus Foundation, Laughing Gull Foundation, NoVo Foundation, and Anonymous Donors.
