Rapid Response Funds for Trans UUs

UPDATE: Due to TRUUsT's move to a new fiscal sponsor, we are no longer able to accept donations through this GoFundMe campaign. To make a donation to TRUUsT in support of this fund, please email us at truust (at) transuu (dot) org. Thank you!


Unitarian Universalism is a faith that values gender diversity and affirms the sacredness of all genders. We strive to be a religion where trans people can find a spiritual home and bring forward spiritual gifts born of a unique and valuable perspective on the world. We support our trans and gender creative children and youth, we offer rituals of healing and validation to trans people in transition, and we honor our trans leaders and religious professionals.

In the wake of recent events and the Trump administration’s continued assault on trans lives, TRUUsT calls on Unitarian Universalists everywhere to take immediate action to live out the above truths and directly support trans UUs by making a donation to fund trans UUs' healing and survival. Half of all trans Unitarian Universalists do not have enough income to meet their personal needs, and in the wake of recent events trans UUs have myriad needs—from needing to escape unsafe living situations to needing additional care and support for PTSD and other intensified traumas. 

This fund will be administered by TRUUsT, our UU organization of trans religious professionals. We are seeking to make small rapid-response grants to trans UUs in need, particularly trans UUs of color, trans women and transfeminine UU folks, disabled trans UU people, and trans UU youth and elders. (Note: if you are in need of a grant please contact us at truust (at) transuu (dot) org.)

Show your Unitarian Universalist trans kindred that they can depend on their faith community to care for them! Please donate now.
