Grants to this Grantee
for The Curve Foundation  
The Curve Foundation is a fiscally sponsored project of Social Good Fund, a California nonprofit corporation. The foundation is focused on giving voice to, validating, and preserving the experiences and stories of the lesbians, queer women, trans women, and nonbinary people of all races and ages who make up the Curve Community. This grant will support the foundation’s operating expenses as it hires its first staff members. During the first year, it will build its first cohort of emerging journalists focused on telling stories related to the Curve Community, bringing them into community through a partnership with the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association. With its new executive director, it plans to develop and implement programming around leadership and community archives and build its administrative, fundraising, and communications systems to enable future growth.
for the Marsha P. Johnson Institute  
A grant to the Social Good Fund will support its fiscally sponsored project, the Marsha P. Johnson Institute, which protects and defends the human rights of Black transgender people by organizing, advocating, creating an intentional community to heal, developing transformative leadership, and promoting its collective power. Founded both as a response to the murders of Black trans women and women of color and their broader exclusion from social justice issues, the organization is grounded in the legacy of Marsha P. Johnson, encouraging its membership to reclaim the autonomy of trans minds, bodies, and futures.
