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 for Women supports women's groups that advance the human rights of women and girls. GFW grants help strengthen and link women’s funds based outside the United States by providing flexible and timely grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 per year for operating and re-granting expenses. First-time grant awards generally range from $5,000 to $25,000 per year. We value local expertise and believe that women themselves know best how to determine their needs and propose solutions for lasting change.
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
2. Travel Grants
3. Organizing Meeting/Event Grants
