The Global Fund for Women, Travel and Event Grants
The Global Fund for Women supports women's groups that advance the human rights of women and girls. We strengthen women’s groups based outside the United States by providing small, flexible, and timely grants ranging from $500 to $20,000 per year for operating and project expenses. First-time grant awards generally range from $3,000 to $9,000 per year.
We value local expertise and believe that women themselves know best how to determine their needs and propose solutions for lasting change.

We welcome proposals that may fall into, but are not limited to, the following broad thematic areas:
• Building Peace & Ending Gender-Based Violence
• Advancing Health and Sexual & Reproductive Rights
• Expanding Civic & Political Participation
• Ensuring Economic & Environmental Justice
• Increasing Access to Education
• Fostering Social Change Philanthropy

Please note that your group MUST meet all the following criteria to be eligible for a grant:
• It is based in a country outside the United States. We do not fund US based organizations.
• Its primary focus is advancing women’s equality and human rights, with these goals clearly reflected in its activities.
• It is a group of women working together. We do not accept requests from individuals.
• It is governed, directed, and led by women. Women must fill all or most of the leadership roles.

The Global Fund receives over 3,500 proposals each year and awards about 600 grants annually, with only 16% of these grants going to travel and event organizing. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to provide funding to all the groups that meet our criteria. We do, however, give priority to women’s groups that might particularly benefit from our support. Please note, priority will be given to previous grantees of the Global Fund for Women that do not have access to other funding sources. These include groups that:
• Are in the first five years of existence. Groups do not need to be registered non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to qualify for funding.
• Do not have access to funds from larger donor agencies.
• Are located in a region or country that has extremely limited funding resources.
• Are working on issues that are difficult or controversial for women to raise in their communities, yet are critical to the realization of women’s human rights.
• Are organized and led by women from particularly marginalized populations, including but not limited to: refugees, rural women, economically disadvantaged women, women with disabilities, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQI) populations, sex workers, women affected by military occupation, women in conflict and post-conflict regions, girls and young women, and women from ethnic, religious, and cultural minorities.
• Actively includes the perspectives of those served by or benefiting from the group’s activities.
Women-focused projects within mixed-gender organizations may occasionally receive support from the Global Fund if they work with particularly marginalized groups: for example, women within groups of people with disabilities or women within LGBTQI organizations.

Please note that these types of requests must be received no later than 8 weeks before the beginning of the event and that funds for these kinds of grants are limited. You may submit a request in any language, by e-mail, fax, or post. After you submit a proposal, a notice of receipt will be sent within 2 weeks of its arrival at the Global Fund. There are no proposal deadlines. We accept proposals all year. Urgent requests for support to organize meetings, conferences, and networking of women or for women’s participation in local, regional, or international meetings and conferences will be considered outside of our normal grant cycle, due to their time-sensitive nature. Please note that these types of requests must come from organizations, not individuals. A group may only have one proposal of any type under consideration at a given time. In addition, please note that the Global Fund is not able to award a grant to all the deserving groups that apply and that we are also often unable to award the total amount requested.
