Funding Criteria

  • Comic Relief will want to work with amazing women and girl-led organizations, partnerships, consortia and women’s funds that are supporting women to have collective power, build movements and become change agents.
  • Comic Relief is interested in hearing about the work that applicants feel is most important and appropriate to secure long-term change for women and girls in their context. Comic Relief understand that change takes time, and so are interested in what their long-term goals are and who else they are working with to achieve these, either in formal partnerships, or informally.
  • Comic Relief is interested in supporting the development of specific work (such as campaigns, advocacy and/or services) when it is part of this long-term change. They are also interested in supporting work which helps movement constituents develop a common agenda for change, such as developing and sharing analytic frameworks, learning and research, and work that is focused on base building, such as growing membership and leadership, building/growing/supporting alliances and solidarity both between and within movements.
  • Comic Relief is inviting locally-rooted organizations to tell that what solutions they believe will work, demonstrating how their solutions are rooted in and informed by an understanding and experience of delivery, centering the experiences of those most affected by the issue. This is to ensure that lived experience and learning from doing are at the heart of the work. There is evidence that their work is already making a demonstrable difference, this is an exciting opportunity to expand, learn and influence from that work.
  • Comic Relief is inviting applications from any of the geographies where they fund in. These are the priorities countries: United Kingdom, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.
