For our 2017 funding cycle, we received an incredible 477 applications from trans folks in need of help to obtain their gender-affirming surgeries.
We are proud to have awarded over $11,000 in support to three recipients: Armaan, Caden, and Gabriel. Throughout the year, we will continue to work with as many applicants as possible to connect them to the health care they urgently need.
Interested applicants can visit this page and fill out the application forms online. Finalists are chosen and announced in late December. Each finalist is asked for an essay that answers a few questions about what the surgery fund would mean for them. Funding is then granted early 2017 to the winner(s), who can be any person identifying as transgender (FTM, MTF, genderqueer, non-binary, etc.) who wishes to pursue a gender-confirming surgery.
We have very few requirements for applicants in an effort to be as inclusive as possible. We ask that applicants:
