COVID-19 Emergency Fund: Impact Report
From March 2020 through July 2021, Point of Pride awarded $38,135 in microgrants to 521 trans recipients impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 Emergency Fund provided relief to folks who had lost their income and lacked the financial means to cover short-term health expenses, such as HRT or other prescriptions, therapy or mental health services, and medical supplies.
This work was made possible because of you – community members, allies, fundraisers, and donors – all coming together to provide life-saving support at a time it was needed most. On behalf of our Board of Directors and all of the recipients who benefitted, thank you.
Here’s a look at our impact:
