The Caitlyn Jenner Foundation was born on a tour bus full of trans women on a cross-country road trip while filming E!’s I Am Cait. In 2016, Caitlyn Jenner partnered with MAC AIDS Fund on the sale of Finally Free lipstick, which provided $1.3 million to transgender organizations nationwide. Caitlyn was inspired to see her project benefit the grassroots work of her beloved and under-resourced community, and took the leap to start her own foundation.
The Caitlyn Jenner Foundation promotes equality and combats discrimination by providing grants to organizations that empower and improve the lives of transgender people, including youth, anti-bullying, suicide prevention, healthcare, housing, employment, and related programs.
