Join Our Advisory Board


Advisory Board Logo

TLDEF's Advisory Board serves as a critical community champion of Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund.  Advisory Board members share their talent and energy in service to our mission by providing TLDEF with their professional expertise; their knowledge of diverse constituent perspectives; their connections to local and national resources, colleagues or peers; and their philanthropic support or other forms of needed assistance.

Advisory Board members are appointed by TLDEF’s Board of Directors for two-year terms.  They meet three times per year by telephone conference with TLDEF staff and board members.

Members are expected to act annually in some significant way to support TLDEF’s mission.  This can be through the provision of expert advice, funding or fundraising, or other means.  Members agree to allow TLDEF to publicize their name and participation on the Board, including on letterhead and in other communications.  Members will be invited to attend events such as our anniversary benefit and other special gatherings.

If you think that you can provide objective, constructive input, we want to talk to you about joining TLDEF’s Advisory Board.   We would be grateful to benefit from your expertise and enthusiasm for the work we are doing.
