UN Women’s UN Trust Fund to end Violence against Women provides grants ranging from US $100,000 to US $300,000 to both grassroots NGOs as well as large organizations. It is one of the largest source of funding for NGOs working on promotion of gender equality and addressing gender-based discrimination in different countries around the world.
As organizations prepare to respond to this opportunity and also other calls for proposals on the same issue, we have researched and compiled a set of ideas that can be used for planning and proposing projects in this context. These ideas have been presented in a standard proposal format to aid organizations in developing countries to write funding applications for different donor agencies including the UN Trust Fund.
