The flexible grants provided by the Fund are mostly limited to US $20,000. There are basically three types of grants which NGOs around the world can apply. They are: the General Support Grant, the Travel Grant and the Grant to organize meetings and events. The General Support Grant can be sought by NGOs for implementing new activities or strengthening the organizational capacity. However, these activities need to demonstrate that they are directly relevant for the promotion of women’s rights. The Travel Grant for NGOs fund the travel costs of NGO practitioners for participating in international conferences and workshops, while the Grant to organize meetings and events fund programs organized by NGOs on issues prioritized by the Fund.
The Global Fund for Women accepts proposals in any language. These can also be sent online. The Fund requests at least 8-10 weeks of time to review and approve the submitted proposals. More information about the grants is available at this link.
