Community Grantmaking Fellowship

Community Grantmaking Fellows (CGFs) are trained volunteers who review applications as part of Point of Pride’s Annual Transgender Surgery Fund and HRT Access Fund, which both provide financial assistance towards gender-affirming healthcare.

Together, CGFs help our Board of Directors to carefully evaluate each and every single written application. CGFs keep our processes fair and timely for our applicants and recipients, while providing valuable input along the way.

  • Virtual: all you need to volunteer is access to the Internet
  • Flexible: volunteer whichever days or times best suit your schedule
  • Rewarding: when surveyed, 72% of last year’s volunteers described their experience as “extremely rewarding” and 100% said they would volunteer again because of how meaningful volunteering in this way is
