Gilead supports patient advocacy organizations, community organizations and healthcare entities around the world that work to improve people’s lives. Through our TRANScend Community Impact Fund (Fund), Gilead will support partnerships with Trans-led organizations that are working to improve the safety, health and wellness of Transgender individuals. Specifically, Gilead will support strategic program development, capacity building and implementation of direct service initiatives bolstered by strong community engagement efforts to build and sustain progress in reducing the impact of HIV within Transgender communities. Funded organizations will be asked to work with Gilead’s communications team to identify stories to share through various communication platforms.
Supported by Gilead Sciences, the Destination Tomorrow TRANScend Community Impact Fund will address the disproportionate impact of HIV within Transgender communities with a specific focus on supporting grassroots organizations. The program will be national in scope and largely prioritize organizations led by or primarily serving Trans communities including grassroots initiatives. The program will prioritize organizations serving those areas that are disproportionately impacted by HIV, including southern regions of the United States.
