2016 Trans Funding Survey Collecting Data!
We are writing to encourage you to take the Trans Organization and Funding Survey.
**If you are an autonomous trans group, please take the survey!**
**If you are a trans program housed in a larger organization, please take the survey!**
Many of you may have seen the results of the report or the follow up document focused on the landscape of trans funding globally. The results of this survey have been seen by thousands of people, including funders and grantmakers who are interested in expanding the portfolio of work dedicated to trans groups globally. With your help, we can continue to impact funding globally by providing important information about the sources of funding trans groups receive, the barriers to funding they face, their leadership structures and their organizational needs.
We cannot do it without you. The deadline is December 16.
The only criteria for the trans survey is that the group or program work specifically and primarily on trans issues. Informal or unregistered groups are encouraged to take the survey. Your responses are anonymous and individual answers will be kept completely confidential. As with the prior survey, we are partnering with the LGBTQ-led research firm, Strength in Numbers Consulting Group.
The survey takes less than 20 minutes for a typical organization, although organizations with very complex structures or funding patterns may take longer. Tech support is available for groups that find the survey confusing or difficult, including the ability to take it over the phone with a research associate (email info@StrengthInNumbersConsulting.com if you’d like to take the survey this way). The survey is available in English, French, Spanish, Russian and Mandarin.
The findings of this survey will be used by donors supporting trans groups to improve their grantmaking and technical assistance, and to advocate for increased funding for trans movements. Data will also be shared with groups so they can use it for community organizing, fundraising or movement building as they wish.
Please feel free to forward this survey widely to your lists, and take the survey by December 16!
