We recognise the incredibly difficult time being faced by trans, gender diverse and non-binary people right now, and made the decision to use our annual fundraising campaign to raise funds for Transcend Australia, and their ambition to develop a National Youth Action Program alongside a National Parent Advocacy Program to provide opportunities for both youth and parents to take positive action in countering the negative messaging and to address the disinformation about their lives.
Pride Foundation Australia and its board are pleased to announce that we successfully raised $28,520 in June through both our GiveNow fundraising platform and direct donations, as a result of our Pride Month Fundraiser.
Our target of $20,000 will be donated to Transcend Australia and the remainder will be put towards funding trans-specific projects through our Small Grants program.
