Fund Raising for Change

11.10.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

Over the past few decades, the energy and buzz around defending women’s human rights has been building, and more money than ever is being given towards investing in women’s lives—estimated at $6.1 billion globally, according to research by the Association of Women in Development (AWID). But it can be challenging to figure out how to access these funds. The funding landscape has changed, particularly since the global economic crisis in 2008, and many philanthropists are giving less. Some are pulling out of certain regions, some have narrowed their focus, and many are offering less general and multi-year support. At the same time, donors want to see impact and feel directly connected to the work of their grantees. So how can you access new resources and funding partnerships based on shared values and mutual respect?

The answer in this handbook designed by  the Global Fund for Women who offers some key ideas about raising money to fund women’s rights work in today’s global political and economic context.
