    What percentage of these funds will go directly to victims?

    • Alexis Melvin says:

      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.

    Do you mind breaking down how the donations will be spent? Supplies/ services/ etc?

    • Alexis Melvin says:

      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.

  3. Are you taking just monetary donations or will you be accepting personal hygiene products and things like that?

    • Alexis Melvin says:

      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.

  4. Thank you for doing this. TAG & Buck’s endorsements brought me here to support your important work.

      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.
