The Frances Thompson Education Foundation

The Frances Thompson Education Foundation (TFTEF) provides financial assistance to Black trans and non-binary students.

The Frances Thompson Education Foundation nurtures Black trans and non-binary students and funds academic discourse and theory. Their work is accomplished through a mixture of direct scholarships to Black trans and non-binary students and the 2021 launch of The Frances Thompson Academic journal. In order to create a more equitable future for the Black trans and non-binary community, TFTEF seeks to put Black trans and non-binary folks in control of their own narratives with the tools and skills they need to succeed.

TFTEF’s mission is to: make college accessible for every Black trans and non-binary child in the country; empower and engage the Black trans and non-binary community through funding and Black trans and non-binary academic discourse and theory.
