Community care keeps us alive and plants seeds for queer and trans futures.  

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—and for all our grant funding—we prioritize funding queer and trans organizations for and by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPOC). Our application process is flexible, and funds are unrestricted.

Helpful Details

  • The CCF application does close temporarily throughout the year so grant officers have time to reflect on and integrate community feedback to ensure the fund is meeting community needs. Review timeline dates will be announced and updated throughout the year.
  • Applications are accepted on a rolling basis when the grant is open and are reviewed monthly
  • This funding is unrestricted  
  • Award amounts are generally no less than $10,000 
  • There are two methods for submitting a grant application: written application or phone interview with a Grants Officer*
  • If you want translated versions of the application, email us! We strive to practice accessibility so let us know about any other ways we can be more accessible  
  • We’ve allocated $551,000 for this grant to move from now until March 2023

* Depending on the number of requests, we may not be able to accommodate your group for a phone interview due to limited staff capacity. We aim to prioritize phone interviews for groups in which a written narrative is not accessible. Your organization must also meet all the basic general eligibility for a phone interview to ensure everyone’s time and labor is honored and respected. To schedule a phone interview, email us at
