Organizational Profile



TrueChild helps donors, policy-makers and practitioners reconnect race, class and gender through “gender transformative” approaches that challenge rigid gender norms and inequities. We are especially interested in the impact of gender on at-risk communities, including those that are of color, LGBTQ, or low income.

Our experts provide expertise and consulting services to philanthropic officers, policy-makers, and non-profits that increases the efficacy of philanthropic efforts, public policy and programmatic efforts while maximizing social returns. Specifically we:

1. Conduct trainings and briefings that help foundations, policy-makers, and non-profits integrate a strong gender lens;

2. Convene scholars, practitioners, policy-makers, and donors so that research begins to inform practice;

3. Develop reports, tool-kits, and other intellectual collateral that promote greater understanding of gender; and,

4. Partner with community organizations to develop and disseminate model “best practice” interventions.
