Trans Lifeline was launched in September using our own funds. Since then a dedicated network of volunteers have been busy training trans people to do crisis intervention for our own community. While we are currently answering calls with over twenty volunteers we plan to extend our reach with an advertising campaign to make sure that our toll free number is readily available to trans people everywhere. Currently we have filed for 501c3 status and are waiting for approval from the IRS. We have been holding off with fundraising from insitutional donors until we have non profit status. In the meantime we need to keep the hotline funded. This money will let us bridge that gap until the IRS gets back to us with our non profit status. Please give whatever you can!
