    GLOBAL FUND FOR WOMEN


    Mallaba Foundation updated:2010-8-14 21:52:47 hits:5

    The Global Fund for Women supports women's groups that advance the human rights of women and girls. We strengthen women's right groups based outside the United States by providing small, flexible, and timely grants ranging from $500 to $30,000 for operating and program expenses. We value local expertise and believe that women themselves know best how to determine their needs and propose solutions for lasting change.

    Who the Global Fund supports
    Groups of women working together.
    Organizations that demonstrate a clear commitment to women’s equality and women’s human rights.
    Organizations that are governed and directed by women.
    Organizations based outside of the United States.
    Who the Global Fund does NOT support
    Individuals and Scholarships
    Organizations that do not have a women’s human rights focus.
    Organizations headed or managed by men.
    Organizations whose sole activities are income-generation and/or charity.
    Organizations based or working primarily in the United States.
    Organizations in the Global North proposing partnerships in the Global South.
    Government entities, political parties or election campaigns.
    If your organization fulfills these criteria, and you would like to apply for a grant, please read the next page.

    Types of Grants 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 will send you a note of receipt within three weeks of receiving your application. Thank you!

    We have three types of grants:

    1. General Support Grants These are flexible, small grants to cover general operating and project expenses.

    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.

    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.
