The funding is for organisational development work relating to areas such as strategy, governance, leadership, alliances and partnerships, funding, demonstrating impact and systems and processes.
- Rosa is offering two-year grants of up to £40,000 to Black and minoritised-led women’s and girls’ organisations in the UK which have been established for three years or more, and which have an average income of less than £100,000 per year.
What they will Fund?
With this funding they want to enable Black and minoritised-led women’s and girls’ organisations to be in a stronger position to survive, thrive and grow into the future.
By this, they mean that your organisation will be able to report one or more of these changes:
- a clearer strategy
- more effective governance
- more effective leadership
- stronger alliances with other women’s organisations
- more financial sustainability
- more able to attract funding from other sources
- more able to demonstrate the impact of your work
- more effective systems and processes
Rosa’s Rise Fund is for Black and minoritised-led women’s and girls’ organisations which have been established for at least three years and which have an average annual income of less than £100,000.
They particularly welcome proposals from organisations that:
- are ‘user-led’. By this they mean organisations that are created from and connected to the communities they serve and which design their services based on direct, lived experience.
- work with and for especially marginalised Black and minoritised women and girls e.g. those with no recourse to public funds, refugee and asylum seekers, women experiencing homelessness, women and girls using drugs and alcohol, women and girls who have been trafficked, those with a disability, older women, LBGT+ women and girls.
- operate in less economically resilient communities within the UK.
