The 2018 Holiday Campaign
As a transgender-led organization, Trans Lifeline believes that trans people taking care of trans people is a transformative act. In service of this belief, we offer both emotional and financial support to our community.
Thanks to a very generous new anonymous donor to Trans Lifeline, every gift up to $75,000 will be matched dollar for dollar this holiday season! And here’s why: “In light of the current assaults on the rights of trans people, I believe it’s more important than ever to materially and directly support the trans community. Trans Lifeline is one of the providers of that support, bringing assistance directly to people who need it the most.” This kind of support is exactly what Trans Lifeline needs to sustain all of our lifesaving services - including our peer support Hotline, the only one of its kind run by and for trans people, and our Microgrants program, offering low-barrier grants to trans people for legal name changes, updated government identification documents, and specialized support for incarcerated and undocumented trans people.
Demand for all of our services continues to grow, and Trans Lifeline works hard to keep up with the needs of our community. We cannot do this without your generosity. We are primarily funded by individual donors; donations of all sizes are deeply appreciated and put to good use to help us deliver our lifesaving services to those who need them most. Recurring gifts are especially useful to provide a sustainable foundation today and into the future as we anticipate increased demand for our services. Thank you, and happy holidays!
