We take pride in prioritizing grants for organizations supporting the Transgender, Gender Nonconforming, and Intersex (TGI) community. Recipients include the TGI Justice Project, offering legal services for incarcerated and impacted TGI individuals, and the California Trans, Gender Nonconforming, Intersex Policy Alliance, a statewide TGI policy coalition. WFC’s Dr. Beatriz María Solís Policy Institute (SPI) also champions TGI justice, including achievements such as the establishment of the Transgender Wellness and Equity Fund and the passage of the Momnibus bill, offering vital reproductive support to TGI people of color.
Women’s Foundation of California is awarding $665,000 in annual and multiyear grants through 2024 to groups that provide direct services to people and those pushing for policy changes. These include the TGI Justice Project, which provides legal services for incarcerated trans and gender-nonconforming people, and the Dr. Beatriz María Solís Policy Institute, which has led several successful policy fights. Its efforts have resulted in the creation of the Transgender Wellness and Equity Fund within the California Department of Public Health and the passage of the Momnibus bill to support transgender and gender-nonconforming people of color through pregnancy, birth, and parenting.
