Community care is the antidote for isolation, exploitation, and oppression. We create the joy, rest, pleasure, and healing we need to sustain and transform ourselves. For queer and trans people, there are infinite possibilities for how we protect and care for each other—and this fund supports our collective efforts to practice that care.
For us, community care is any effort to respond to community threats, harms, needs, hopes, and healing. Whether it’s mutual aid, safety planning, opportunities for healing, or any number of practices—we want to help support whatever “community care” means to you.
For this fund we prioritize funding queer and trans organizations that are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)-led and focused organizations in rural communities. Our application process is flexible, and funds are unrestricted.
