Feminist Review Trust – Funding for projects that support women and girls

16 Mar 2018 - 10:14 by michelle.foster

Funding of up to £15,000 is available for projects within the UK and internationally that support and transform the lives of women. Feminist Review Trust

Priority is given to projects that:

  • Promote lesbian and transgender rights
  • Tackle violence against women and girls
  • Support disabled women and girls

The Feminist Review Trust will fund:

  • Hard to fund projects. Some types of projects are difficult to fund. Typically these projects have no other obvious sources of funding. This might mean, for example, that traditional academic sources are either not interested in the area or that it is an activist project or that it is too feminist for most conventional funding sources
  • Pump priming activities. This means that they will provide a small amount of funding to help start an activity in the hope that it will then be able attract sufficient funding to continue
  • Interventionist projects which support feminist values. It is often difficult for projects around core feminist concerns such as abortion rights and domestic violence to find funding
  • Training and development projects: projects will be funded which provide training in relevant areas
  • One off events
  • Dissemination: the production and distribution of relevant material will be funded. Too often wonderful work has had a more limited impact than it should because it was not well of fully distributed The Trust will fund dissemination
  • Core funding: the Trust realises that many groups struggle to raise core funding. The Trustees are willing to offer core funding to cover staff costs, accommodation etc., except in instances where applicants are seeking core funding to replace funding lost as a result of public sector cuts
  • Other projects: if your application does not easily fit into any of the above categories the Trust may still support it

The funding is being made available through the Feminist Review Trust who are particularly interested in applications for hard-to-fund projects.
