By: Funders for LGBTQ Issues Staff on January 5, 2021

Aldita Gallardo, former GUTC fellow (class of 2019) offers advice to Nonprofit Quarterly readers in a recent op-ed. In the op-ed titled Resourcing Trans-Led Organizations and Building Power for Trans Communities, Aldita talks about her personal journey navigating the philanthropic sector as a nonbinary Translatina immigrant working at one of the leading philanthropic institutions moving resources to LGBTQ communities. At Borealis Philanthropy, Aldita serves as the Senior Program Associate for the Fund for Trans Generations.

In this article, Aldita also talks about the dire need for funds like the Fund for Trans Generations (FTG) during the COVID-19 era, the importance of creating spaces of healing, and makes a clear call to action for  philanthropy to increase support for trans and gender nonconforming communities.
