Donate to the Trans Disaster Relief Fund

The Transgender Foundation of America created this disaster relief fund because trans, intersex, and genderqueer individuals have historically experienced significant difficulties in natural disaster situations. Worse, recent attacks by lawmakers have resulted in heightened hostility against local trans people. This fund will be used to help our historically underserved community recover from this catastrophic event. If needed, the fund will also assist with burial costs for community members who’ve lost their lives in this historic disaster.

    1. The Transgender Foundation of America (TFA) and all of the TFA divisions are operated 100% by volunteers. At least 90% of the funds raised will go directly to assist victims. The remaining funds will be used to support the Houston area Transgender, Intersex, and Genderqueer community and may include support for activities such as peer led support groups that serve the entire community.

    1. That will depend on where we see the most pressing needs. We are providing supplies, assistance with housing and recovery services, funds to replace destroyed documents, funds for daily living needs, and expect to provide legal support and assistance in other areas as the needs arise.

    1. Thank you for asking.
      We will be accepting non-cash donations. We are currently working on the list of items we can accept and the logistics of storing and distributing the items. We will let you know as soon as we are ready for non-cash items.

    1. Thanks for commenting.

      And, as IRMA approaches, we want everyone to know that we are not limiting this to supporting those who were effected by Harvey.
