Women's Funds Overview and Application Criteria

In 1997, the Global Fund for Women launched the Women’s Fund Program to formalize our commitment to foster local expertise and promote sustainable local philanthropy. A women’s fund is an entity that makes grants to support the advancement of women’s human rights and status of women and girls.

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.

Please note that your Women’s Fund 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 to award grants to women’s human rights groups. o Its past or proposed activities include grantmaking and/or capacity-building for women’s rights groups.
  • It is governed, directed, and led by women.  Women must fill most or all of the leadership roles.


The Global Fund seeks to strengthen and sustain local philanthropy of Women’s Funds by investing in the following priority areas:

  • Providing general operating support to build grantmaking, fundraising, and organizational capacity of women’s funds.
  • Promoting mutual learning exchanges among women’s funds.

The Global Fund receives over 3,500 proposals for general support, including the women’s funds, each year and awards about 600 grants annually.  Unfortunately we do not have the resources to provide funding to all the Women’s Funds that meet our criteria.  We do, however, give priority to Women’s Funds that might particularly benefit from our support. These include groups that:

  • Are actively fundraising from local sources.
  • Are located in a region or country that has extremely limited access to funding resources.
  • Are making grants to groups 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 making grants to women’s groups 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 include the perspectives of those served by or benefiting from the fund’s activities.

In addition, please note that the Global Fund does NOT fund the following:

  • Individuals
  • Government entities
  • Groups based and working primarily or only in the US
  • Women’s Funds in the Global North proposing projects with local partners
  • Groups whose sole purpose is to generate income or to provide charity to individuals
  • Groups headed and managed by men, without women in the majority of leadership positions
  • Funds that support political parties or election campaigns
  • Women’s branches, departments, or projects of mixed gender organizations  

You may submit a request in any language, by e-mail, fax, or post. We usually accept proposals all year, but grants are awarded only four times a year after approval by our international Board of Directors. After you submit a proposal, a notice of receipt will be sent within 3 weeks of its arrival at the Global Fund. You will receive a decision on your proposal or a request for additional information in approximately 2-3 months. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, final grant awards to women’s funds may not be made for up to 5 to 6 months. In addition, please note that the Global Fund is not able to award a grant to all the deserving funds that apply and that we are also often unable to award the total amount requested.

The Global Fund encourages women’s funds to include their travel and conference budgets in the general support application.  In RARE cases, the Global Fund accepts urgent requests related to a crisis of some kind, or for requests that pertain to organizing or attending a conference, or other time-bound event.  Such requests will be considered outside of our normal grant cycle due to their time-sensitive nature.  Applications must be submitted by organizations, not individuals, and must be received at least 8 weeks before the event. Funding for such requests is extremely limited and preference will be given to past Global Fund grantees.

The increasing and fruitful use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) is being recognized and acknowledged world over. That ICT is a great tool for development and empowerment is being realized by its various stakeholders. Countries of the world are resorting to use of ICT to better their socio-cultural and economic landscapes in ways feasible and sustainable depending on their ground level situations. 

Developed and under developed countries and societies are experiencing the increasing interventions of ICT in various domains of activities. The ICT components increasingly being used for development and empowerment purposes includes computer, Internet, Community Radio, audio-video, and other latest gadgets. Blogging is another new entrant in the ICT domain.

So far ICT is being increasingly used in areas like livelihood, education, employment generation, entertainment, health, environment, sustainable development, ICT literacy, business, commerce, and in other fields. Instances have been reported in large numbers of how ICT has helped and assisted in community empowerment and development, trade and business, education and health and so on. In this entire gamut of ICT exercises credit goes to governments, CSOs, NGOs, individuals and others whose valuable contributions have bore fruit so far and the efforts still continues. So far so good.

IT is not roses all the way in case of ICT and its role in development and empowerment world over. There are increasing reports of digital divide, information poverty, information haves and have/nots, digital gaps, digital poverty which all point to the huge gap in making ICT available to a huge chunk of world population as well as to a huge section within a nation. India fits well into the above dichotomy of digital growth versus digital divide.

It is more than a decade that ICT has seen its vertical as well as horizontal growth in various domains of interventions be it education, health, livelihood, trade and commerce and governance. Both public and private projects and programs have been initiated at the behest of Governments, CSOs, Corporate bodies, individuals using ICT. No doubt such gigantic exercises using ICT for development and empowerment have bore mixed outputs.

There are reports emanating from states in India like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Uttaranchal, Delhi where ICT has been used in the most utilitarian and quality perspectives. Instances are reported of how individuals and local communities are being empowered and sustained using various ICT tools like Internet, PC, CR and other mediums. Projects like NeGP, Mission 2007, CSCs, Info kiosks run by various bodies and agencies are all leading to an accelerated use of ICT for all round holistic growth and development of India.

Despite all these, the bug of digital divide haunts India. There are cases where ICT has been pumped into those hands and heads wherein the existing environment is either healthier or better of vis-à-vis in those areas wherein even the basic services of ICT is still being deprived in terms of telecom facilities along with power non-availability, no PC penetration, no trace of Internet, no means of traditional technology and so on.

With this the information gap is hurting the community development in the holistic sense. The rich-poor divide is seen to have its reflection in this information and ICT maps as well. With this there is left out huge gap for quality and timely interventions of ICT in those inaccessible, unreachable, alienated lands and communities for their upliftment and empowerment. 
It is here Digital Empowerment Foundation could trace its ICT interventions justified and timely.

The Programme is sourced with a belief that global environmental problems can only be addressed adequately if local people are involved in planning, decision making and sharing roles and responsibilities at all levels. Even with small amounts of funding communities can undertake activities, which will make "Significant Difference" in their Livelihoods and environment. GEF UNDP SGP is currently working in 114 countries worldwide. The program started in India from the year 1996-1997.

The UNDP and Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Government of India (GOI) administers Small Grants Programme (SGP). It is being implemented by Centre for Environment Education (CEE) as the National Host Institution (NHI) since September 2000. CEE is a national level institution supported by Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India as a centre of excellence, and affiliated to the Nehru Foundation for Development, Ahmedabad. CEE has its presence felt in all the states and Union Territories of India through a local network of 7 regional offices and 23 field offices across the country. So far SGP has supported 303 projects across various geographical locations across the country and in five thematic areas including Climate Change and biodiversity.  The emphasis is more on establishing low cost, low external input and easy to manage technologies and social mechanisms 


The program is working through a more decentralized system of Regional offices in order to reach out to remote, un-reached and inaccessible poor areas of the country. It aims to provide a countrywide coverage and to also address the local issues more appropriately leading to better livelihoods of the poor. While the strategy has been very effective in drawing out the NGO's and CBO's to address the issues in a more sustainable matter, it remains to see how we can involve the people's initiatives through the Community Based Organizations (CBO) This demands greater hand holding at the grass root levels and at different stages within the SGP program. CEE has always sensitized the 'evolving processes within the SGP and reflect how it can be continuously improvised'. The Regional Committees are the first level review process in overseeing the effectiveness of the project proposals under the SGP.

Objectives of SGP

  • Develop community level strategies and implement technologies that could reduce threats to the global environment if they are replicated over time and space.

Gather lessons, responsive ways of project implementation from community level experiences and initiate the sharing of successful community level strategies and innovations among Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and NGOs, Host

  • Governments, Development Aid Agencies, GEF and others working from a regional to global scale.

Build partnerships and networks of stakeholders to support and strengthen community, NGOs and state capacities to address global environmental problems enabling sustainable development

  • Ensure that conservation and sustainable development strategies and projects that protect the global environment are understood, practiced and replicated by communities and other key stakeholder

Small Grants Programme provides grants to organizations for activities that address local problems with Global effects and offer solutions in areas of:

  • Biodiversity Conservation
  • Climate Change Mitigation
  • Protection of International Waters
  • Prevention of Land Degradation
  • Phasing out Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)

Financial support by SGP
SGP will normally consider grants up to USD 50,000.for each project. In special cases, where co-financing commitments are more, slightly higher budgets may be considered, if the project activities justify this. More emphasis is placed on leveraging local contributions in-cash and in-kind from communities.

Detailed information in the website-



MISEREOR was founded in 1958 as an agency "against hunger and disease in the world". In its capacity as the overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Germany, it offers to cooperate in a spirit of partnership with all people of goodwill to promote development, fight worldwide poverty, liberate people from injustice, exercise solidarity with the poor and the persecuted, and help create "One World". 

MISEREOR is mandated by the Catholic Church in Germany:to fight the causes of hardship and misery as manifested chiefly in countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America in the forms of hunger, disease, poverty and other forms of human suffering,thus enabling the people affected to lead a life of human dignity,and to promote justice, freedom, reconciliation and peace in the world.

"It is available in principle to any human being in distress, irrespective of race, gender, creed or nationality."


About MISEREOR Funds

MISEREOR does not implement any overseas projects of its own; ratehr it supports partner organisations in their efforts to achieve a more just and peaceful world. Support is provided on the basis of a funding request submitted by theorganisation that intends to implement the project.Misereor selects from among the requests t receives and on the basis of the funds available allocates it to those projects which convincingly demonstrate that they are likely to help overcome injustice and poverty. there is no fixed list of crieteria for this, because MISEREOR wishes to remain open to new idea

and approaches contained in requests, and indeed expressly encourages these. Having said that, there are a few expectations for which MISEREOR does not provide support.

They include:

-- Purely pastoral and missionary projects (this lies outside the mandate given to MISEREOR by the German Bishop's Conference)

-- projects of governmental agancies, including for instance municipal administrations (exceptions to this are made only in very few countries due to the special conditions under which the civil society operates)

-- projects that demonstrably should and can be funded by the state.


Requests can be submitted at any time throughout the year, no invitations to submit requests are published nor are there any fixed submission deadlines. Applicants should note that once a request has been submitted it will normally be six months before a decision is taken on it. During this period MISEREOR and the organisation submiting the request will often discuss it and clarify relevant aspects. A funding request should therefore be submitted to MISEREOR at least six months prior to the planned launch of the project.

The Sir Ratan Tata Small Grant Programme (SGP)

The Sir Ratan Tata Small Grant Programme (SGP)

With a view to cater to the needs of small welfare oriented organisations, which were generally unable to access the Trust's funds, the Sir Ratan Tata Small Grant Programme (SGP) was launched in 1998-99. Since then, the Small Grant Programme has supported several hundred organisations across all five thematic areas of the Trust.

The Trust uses the SGP extensively to provide institutional support to fledgling development initiatives, including direct support to community based organisations.

In order to qualify for a grant under this programme, an organisation:

must have been in existence for at least one financial year
should be working in a thematic area supported by the Trust
should be situated in either an urban or rural area, though preference will be given to organisations in rural areas
should have an expenditure not exceeding Rs2 million in the last financial year
should not be employing more than 20 individuals

However, grants may NOT be requested for:

purchase of land and building
construction activity of any kind
purchase of vehicles
corpus fund
conferences, workshops and seminars
office equipment including computers
training or travel abroad

The SGP was primarily envisaged to cater to the needs of small welfare centered organisations and subsequently amended, to include larger organisations that needed support for strategic planning or evaluation, conducting focused research activities, mainstreaming of innovations, conducting reviews and appraisals and strengthening internal systems.

Grants made to these larger organisations have been classified under the 'special¿ category, whilst those sanctioned to the smaller organisations constitute the ¿regular¿ SGPs. The programme is also a useful tool for the Trusts to field test new ideas and innovations, support preparatory phases that precede major long duration projects, conduct workshops, events and external reviews within key areas of programmatic intervention.

Receipt of a proposal does not indicate a funding commitment. All proposals received are subjected to a rigorous appraisal process, at the end of which, the decision taken regarding extending support, is communicated to the applicant.

Note: The Trust supports registered Indian Non Profit Organisations o
