GUTC is committed to being accountable to these values as it advances its core goals:
We strive to remain accessible to trans people not yet connected to philanthropy or Funders for LGBTQ Issues who want to participate in investing in trans communities. We recognize the unequal power dynamics inherent in philanthropy, and the need to create accessible spaces that allow a diverse range of trans people to participate in philanthropy and organizational leadership.
We strive to stay accountable and be responsive to the needs of a diverse trans community in order to improve the lived experiences of trans/GNC people.
We strive to create a generative space where we discuss ideas and solutions rather than focusing only on the problems. We seek to learn from past pitfalls in philanthropy and not recreate them.
