Community Grantmaking Fellowship

Volunteer with us to serve our trans siblings

Community Grantmaking Fellows (CGFs) are trained volunteers who review applications as part of Point of Pride’s financial aid programs.

Together, CGFs and our Board of Directors carefully evaluate every single application received to our financial aid programs: the Annual Trans Surgery Fund, the HRT Access Fund, and the Electrolysis Support Fund.

CGFs keep our programs fair, equitable, and timely for our applicants and recipients, while also providing valuable input along the way.

Why become a CGF?

Members of the trans community have an incredible history of resilience and coming together to create powerful, life-affirming support for one another.

The Community Grantmaking Fellow program embodies that history by providing support from and for the community.



All you need to volunteer is reliable access to the Internet.



Volunteer on days or at times that fit your schedule.



When surveyed, 72% of last year’s volunteers described their experience as “extremely rewarding,” and 100% said they would volunteer again.
