Call For Proposals: UN Women: Fund For Gender Equality
The Fund for Gender Equality is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for the second phase of its 2011-2012 grantmaking cycle.

Women make up more than half the world’s population, but the majority of them live in poverty. For their lives to change, they need access to and control of economic resources and political power: to speak out, run for office, and support themselves and their families.
UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality helps change the lives of women all over the world. The Fund’s goal is to advance women’s economic and political empowerment through high-impact, multi-year grants of up to USD 1 million.
The money is awarded directly to women’s organizations and partnerships between governmental and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Spain’s donation of USD 65 million started the Fund in 2009, followed by Norway’s USD 3 million, Mexico’s USD 800,000 and the Netherland’s contribution of USD 1.2 million. The Fund totals USD 71 million and is one of the largest and most recent grantmaking funds dedicated to women’s rights and empowerment globally.
Since its launch in 2009, the has invested USD 43 million in multi-year grants to 55 programmes in 40 countries.
