We are delighted to announce the launch of the Woman to Woman fund. With grants of up to £25,000, no fewer than 100 local grassroots women’s organisations across the UK will be supported using funds from the ‘Tampon Tax.’
Grants are available for groups with an income of under £100,000 per year, to support a wide range of charitable work that benefits women: from building confidence and leadership skills, tackling harassment and violence, to training in financial literacy and increasing engagement in decision-making – and much more besides.
Rosa especially wants to support groups that work with disadvantaged communities or in disadvantaged areas. Grants can pay for core work, as well as mobilising volunteers, leadership development, communications and advocacy.
As well as grants, Rosa will provide additional support that women’s groups tell us they need, including mentoring, training and networking opportunities.
If you meet the following requirements you can apply for a grant:
Grants of between £5,000 and up to and including £25,000 are available. Any grant awarded must be spent within 12 months of receipt.
Applicants will be shortlisted according to the fund criteria, the clarity and credibility of their plans, and to ensure a diversity of applications including across geography, Rosa’s four pillars, new and innovative or tried and tested approaches.
The Woman to Woman fund is now open for applications. Please apply below.
All of the key dates in the application process are outlined below. Please submit your application as early as possible.
The deadline for applications is Monday January 16th at 9am and successful applicants will be informed by end March.
