The Jim Collins Foundation offers two grant options. The Founders' Grant covers 100% of the surgical costs associated with a gender-affirming surgery. The Krysallis Anne Hembrough Legacy Fund covers 50% of the surgical costs associated with a gender-affirming surgery, the recipient provides the other 50% using their own financial resources.
Applicants may only apply once per grant cycle, and in their application, must choose to be considered for either the Founders' Grant or the Krysallis Anne Hembrough Legacy Fund.
The mission of the Jim Collins Foundation is to provide financial assistance to transgender people for gender-affirming surgeries. The Jim Collins Foundation recognizes that not every transgender person needs or wants surgery to achieve a healthy transition. But for those who do, gender-affirming surgeries are an important step in their transition to being their true selves. However, access to gender-affirming surgery is impossible for most. Discrimination against transgender people is so prevalent that many transgender people struggle to survive, never mind save for surgery costs.
