Mama Cash Resilience Fund: Supporting Collective Activism for Lasting Change

Deadlines 17 March 2024 – Mama Cash, a global feminist fund, is currently accepting Letters of Interest (LOIs) from applicants who are not current grantee-partners. The submission period is from 19 February until 17 March 2024, closing at 11:59pm CET. To access the LOI format or find more information on how to apply for funding, please visit our website.

At Mama Cash, we believe in the power of self-led feminist groups to drive change. In every corner of the world, courageous feminist activists are working together to build collective power, claim justice, and create, sustain, and revive ways of living that are just and fair.

The Resilience Fund, our largest grantmaking program, aims to resource, support, and connect the collective activism of women, girls, and trans and intersex people globally. We recognize that lasting change comes from the collective activism of those who are structurally excluded, marginalized, exploited, and stigmatized.

The Resilience Fund supports feminist groups, collectives, and initiatives that are founded, led, and/or run by individuals who belong to the communities whose rights they seek to advance. These groups are working to advance their own political and social agendas, build connections across issues and borders, and strengthen feminist and other social justice movements.

We understand that movement building and structural change take time. That’s why the Resilience Fund provides long-term, flexible, core support grants. We prioritize smaller and emerging groups that are doing critically important work but have limited access to funding. We are open to funding both registered, formal organizations and informal or unregistered groups of activists, as well as networks or coalitions.

Under the Resilience Fund, the average grant size is €35,000. Additionally, Mama Cash provides accompaniment to all grantee-partners, offering both financial and non-financial resources. This accompaniment support is tailored to the specific organizational needs and plans identified by the grantee-partner, helping them obtain, improve, retain, build, and sharpen their skills, knowledge, and networks.

To be eligible for funding, organizations must work from a feminist, women’s, girls’, trans rights, and/or intersex rights perspective. They should be self-led by the women, girls, trans people, and/or intersex people they serve, and have a primary mission to promote their human rights. Priority is given to groups that focus on under-addressed and/or contested issues, pushing for structural and fundamental change.
