The New York Women’s Foundation signs the GUTC Pledge

Today, Funders for LGBTQ Issues is publicly launching the Grantmakers United for Trans Communities (GUTC) Pledge, with more than 30 inaugural funders making a historic commitment to increase inclusiveness and funding for trans communities!

Transgender people are among the most vulnerable, and the challenges they face have only heightened in the current political context. It is a moment of immense need and great opportunity for the transgender movement in the United States. We believe philanthropy can and must do more to improve the wellbeing of transgender communities.

That’s why more than 30 diverse funding institutions have pledged to:

1. Participate in trainings and professional development opportunities focused on supporting trans communities;
2. Improve our recruitment and retention of trans and gender non-conforming staff and board members;
3. Increase our grantmaking for trans communities, with a commitment to trans-led organizations; and
4. Publicly express our support for and solidarity with trans communities.

As an inaugural GUTC Pledge signatory committed to improving the wellbeing of trans communities, we pledge to participate in trainings and professional development opportunities focused on supporting trans communities; improve our recruitment and retention of trans and gender non-conforming staff and board members; increase our grantmaking for trans communities, with a commitment to trans-led organizations; and publicly express our support for and solidarity with trans communities.
