Trans Community Fund
About the Trans Community Fund
The QUILTBAG's Trans Community Fund is available for low income trans, non-binary, and two-spirit people to access gender affirming items from the store at no cost - this includes binders, gaffs, bras, packers, and other items depending on availability.
Accessing the Fund
Individuals can access the fund through a brief initial intake with staff or volunteers at the CHEW Project, the Pride Centre of Edmonton, altView, or Shades of Colour. The amount of funding that each person can access is determined based on a discussion around needs, and based on availability of funding. Typically each person receives sufficient funding for at least one gender affirming item.
If you are trans, non-binary, and/or two-spirit and interested in accessing the fund based on financial need, please contact one of our community partners for intake... they will get you set up to do some shopping!
