For-profit

The Black Trans Travel Fund

The Black Trans Travel Fund was founded in 2019 as a for-profit organization that is funded through donations. It claims to spend 80 percent of donations on providing funds for black transgender women to use for transportation costs and keeps 20 percent for salaries and “operations.” [1]

Funding

In 2020, the Black Trans Travel Fund received a commitment for a grant over “six figures” from Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as of March 2021, it claims to have redistributed over $100,000 of its donations to black transgender women. [2] [3]
