Caitlyn Jenner has donated more than $50,000 to LGBT charities in Arizona following her Washington Post op-ed denouncing her support for President Donald Trump.
Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner Foundation Executive Director Sophia Hutchins appeared in Phoenix to announce the foundation’s donations of $20,000 to the Southwest Center’s Transgender Resource and Navigation Service (TRANS), an organization that helps transgender and non-binary individuals receive health care access, $20,000 to GLSEN Phoenix, the Phoenix chapter of the organization that works toward inclusive school environments for LGBT students, $15,000 to the Arizona Trans Youth and Parent Organization (AZTYPO), a group that helps transgender children and their families, and $30,000 to Mulligan’s Manor, a home for at-risk LGBT youth in Phoenix.
“I want to concentrate on this next generation coming up, the ones that are 5 to 15 to 20 years old, this next generation coming up to make it easier for them. Don’t put all of these challenges out in front of them. Make it more normal,” Jenner told Fox10 Phoenix.
The reality star and former Olympian also marked the occasion on Twitter tweeting: “I had a great time today distributing four grants to extremely deserving organizations in the Phoenix area. I am blessed to be a part of this community.”
