Global Fund for Women

The Global Fund for Women is an international network of women and men committed to a world of equality and social justice. We advocate for and defend women's human rights by making grants to support women's groups around the world.
The Global Fund receives over 3,000 proposals a year and is able to award about 600 grants annually. Due to the large number of applications we receive, please allow seven to nine months to review your request. We accept applications throughout the year and award grants every three months.
We have three types of grants:
1. General Support Grants
These are flexible, small grants to cover general operating and project expenses.
  • Your group must meet ALL the basic criteria (listed under "application requirements" of the grant application form) to be eligible for a grant.
  • A group may only have one proposal of any type under consideration at a given time.
  • Amount granted may be less than the amount requested if and when an award is made.
2. Travel Grants
These are small grants that allow members of an organization to attend conferences and events.
* Your group must meet all the basic criteria (listed under "application requirements" of the grant application form) to be eligible for a grant.
* A group may only have one proposal of any type under consideration at a given time.
* Amount granted may be less than the amount requested if and when an award is made.
* Applicatons for travel and event grants must be received at least 8 weeks before the beginning of the event. Funds for these kinds of grants are limited.
* Because travel grant funding is limited, priority will be given to former Global Fund for Women grantees that do not have access to other funding sources.
3. Organizing Meeting/Event Grants
These are small grants to support organizations planning a time-sensitive conference or event.
* Organizing Meeting/Event requests must be received no later than 8 weeks before the beginning of the event.
* Because our funding for such travel grants is so limited, priority will be given to former Global Fund for Women grantees that do not have access to other funding sources.
