Type of project: The Resilience Fund – our largest grant making programme – aims to resource, support and connect the collective activism of women, girls, and trans and intersex people around the world. First-time annual grants are made with the intention of renewing them for multiple years, and Mama Cash typically supports partners for up to ten years.
Eligibility: The Fund supports feminist groups, collectives and initiatives that are founded, led, and/or run by people who belong to the communities whose rights they seek to advance. The Fund gives priority to smaller and emerging groups that are doing critically important work but have limited access to funding. In addition to funding registered, formal organisations, we are open to funding informal or unregistered groups of activists, as well as networks or coalitions.
Grant size: €5,000 – €50,000 per year, average grant size €35,000 in flexible, core support.
Closing date: 17 March (opens 19 February)
