Here is a source of potential grant funding for gender-affirming surgeries.  I have no connection to this foundation.  (Forum staff, please move and edit this message to a more appropriate location as you see fit as this grant source is not just for mtfs.)

About the Jim Collins Foundation:

The mission of the Jim Collins Foundation is to provide financial assistance to transgender people for gender-affirming surgeries. The Jim Collins Foundation recognizes that not every transgender person needs or wants surgery to achieve a healthy transition. But for those who do, gender-affirming surgeries are an important step in their transition to being their true selves. However, access to gender-affirming surgery is impossible for most. Discrimination against transgender people is so prevalent that many transgender people struggle to survive, never mind save for surgery costs. Even for those who have health insurance, coverage is systematically denied. Many insurance policies contain a “Transsexual Exclusion Clause” which excludes all medical procedures related to a person’s transgender status. For many transgender people, access to surgery is out of reach.

The Jim Collins Foundation raises money to fund gender-affirming surgeries for those transgender people who need surgery to live a healthy life, but have no ability to pay for it themselves. We recognize that for those people who require surgery for a healthy gender transition, lack of access to surgery may result in hopelessness, depression, and sometimes, suicide. The Jim Collins Foundation is a community-based initiative promoting the self-determination and empowerment of all transgender people.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I tried just clicking on the link in reply 1 and it seems to go to the Web site.  I am glad you got to see it though in any case.  Maybe it is the https part of the link that gives some people Web Browser trouble. Thanks.

Everything sounded awesome! until I checked and it's only for US residents, the way things are I guess I'll have to sell my body if I ever want to get my surgery (not even joking)

In the US right now, some health insurance companies are paying for many gender confirming procedures, not just CGS, but also electrolysis, FFS and breast augmentation or removal.

A good plan is to go to work for a company that offers one of these plans. This may not be your professional goal, but you could do this long enough to complete transition. You don't have to sell your body, just your work will do fine.  :police:  :o  ;)

That is true.   Try to bulk medical services in the same insurance plan year, which may mean it is better to wait until the next year.  Always study the plan's coverage limitations and annual out of pocket maximums, this is the amount beyond the company's and deductibles (although those payment often apply to the out of pocket maximum), and your share of the insurance premiums.

I wanted to post this again as it may help someone here with funding for GCS.

They open up applications for grants each year.

Awwwwe! Thank you Chrissy for sharing this amazing resource!

My heart went soaring for a very brief moment at the possibility of winning the funding. However it applies only to US Residents :(

But it's alright. I hope  you posting this link could help someone from this forum to make their dream come true!

Hugs,
Ally.
