December 19, 2019 (New York, NY) – The Jim Collins Foundation (JCF), a national nonprofit organization with a mission to fund gender-affirming surgeries, has been the benefactor of many generous fundraising events through the course of 2019. Our most recent donation of over $11,000.00 was part of an online fundraiser for Giving Tuesday by Physician Women SOAR (Support, Organize, Advocate, Reclaim).
Physician Women SOAR (@PWSOAR on Facebook) is described as a social activism group for progressively-minded physician women. This group embraces diversity of color, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, lack of religion, ability and neurodiversity. This is an organization that will highlight issues important to ALL voices. They pledge to support and fundraise for diverse political and social causes.
With over $80,000.00 raised in donations in 2019, JCF continues to strive to be a leader among nonprofit organizations that provide surgical grants for transgender people who are underserved and underresourced.
“The Jim Collins Foundation has given me a new life, and most of all what I always wanted, which is to be comfortable in my own skin,” said Marshall, who was one of the five individuals awarded grants in by JCF in 2019.
“Every contribution that the Foundation receives is used in helping change a transgender person’s life by providing surgical grants that cover 100% of the surgical fees associated with gender-affirming surgery,” said Jody Randall, JCF president.
“With over ten years of providing grants, we ask that people consider the Jim Collins Foundation as part of their end-of-year giving plans. Donations received in the final weeks of December will close a record-breaking year in fundraising and support, and will provide us with more resources as we enter into the next decade of our volunteer services and life-changing giving,” said Ryan Sallans, JCF vice president.
As a public charity, contributions to JCF are deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
The 2021 grant application will open on May 15, 2020 and continue through August 1, 2020 at 11:59 PM EST.
