Trans Resistance is about the impact we want to have on the community. This year we aim to fundraise $270K to benefit individuals and organizations that support our BIPOC trans and gender-nonconforming community. We have broken it up into three categories:
Trans Joy Fund - Goal $70,000
Fund efforts that bring our BIPOC trans and GNC community joy such as our traditional event, the Trans Resistance March and Festival: showcasing artists and creating an inclusive space that centers BIPOC trans and GNC individuals.
Pay all artists
Provide a stage/AV
Pay accessibility costs
Enable a free event for all
Trans Leadership Fund - Goal $100,000
We believe BIPOC trans and GNC individuals should be compensated for their leadership and volunteer work. Having the time to volunteer can be hard when you need to financially support yourself and professional development can be costly.
This fund will create a stipend for the Trans Resistance Board President for taking on such a role. Trans Resistance also hopes to promote and highlight other organizations that create leadership opportunities. This fund will also create scholarships for BIPOC trans and GNC individuals to cover the cost of attending professional development/workshops and institutes that are trans related.
Trans Community Fund - Goal $100,00
Trans Resistance wants to provide year round community events and programming. We envision offering community grants where individuals or organizations can apply for a grant should they have an idea, workshop, or opportunity for our community.
We are stronger, TOGETHER!
Total Fundraising Goal: $270,000
