FUNDS

GiveOut enables individual donors to give through a single platform to support LGBTQI causes worldwide. Our grants reflect the diversity of the global LGBTQI movement. 

Named funds are generously sponsored by individual donors who wish to support LGBTQI causes close to their hearts. Others who are interested in the same causes can contribute to these funds in solidarity.

Organisations around the world working on trans-specific issues

 

The Antonia & Andrea Belcher Trans Fund has been established to support trans activism globally, managed by GiveOut and generously sponsored by trans businesswoman Antonia Belcher and her wife Andrea.

Across the world, trans people suffer widespread human rights violations. From discrimination and a lack of legal recognition or status, to violence and killings, people are facing appalling abuses based on their gender identity and expression.

But despite growth in LGBTQI funding, trans organisations are deeply under-resourced. A recent survey found that more than half of trans groups globally had annual budgets of less than US$10,000 (£7,500) ('The State of Trans Organizing', GPP 2017).

Under the fund, small grants will be provided to those activists and their organisations working across the world to improve the lives of trans people.

The first grants under the fund will be provided in the second half of 2018.

The Suki Sandhu LGBTQI Asia Fund

The Suki Sandhu LGBTQI Asia Fund has been established to support much needed human rights activism in Asia. 

Across the region, LGBTQI people are facing human rights abuses based on their sexual orientation and gender identity, from discrimination to violence. In several countries, from Malaysia to Sri Lanka, same sex relations are criminalised. In some, they may be punishable by death. 

But LGBTQI activists are campaigning for change and having impact, with recent, uneven victories in the region for the rights of trans people, marriage equality and same sex partnership rights.

The the fund, grants will be provided to support activists working across Asia to improve the lives of LGBTQI people. GiveOut and Suki Sandhu are ambitious to grow the fund to at least £25,000 annually.

GiveOut will be consulting across the LGBTQI movement in Asia to identify the focus of the new fund and where it can make the greatest difference.

The first grants under the fund will be provided in the second half of 2018.
