WHERE WE FUND
In this first chapter of our growth, funding for the Equality Fund comes primarily from Global Affairs Canada to support our grantmaking in countries eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA).
These and all other funding criteria are clearly outlined each time we release a call for proposals. Sign up for our mailing list to be notified of new funding opportunities in the future.
In the Caribbean, we fund women’s rights and LBTQI organizations through our Women’s Voice and Leadership – Caribbean program.
Across Africa, we work closely with the African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF), a member of the Equality Fund collective that supports women’s rights and feminist groups throughout the African continent. Organizations based in Africa should apply to AWDF directly. Please note that AWDF accepts grant applications year round, but only processes applications twice a year. Learn more about our partnership with AWDF here.
Will the Equality Fund be funding women’s organizations in Canada?
Not right now. We work closely with two Canadian members of our collective, Community Foundations of Canada and the Canadian Women’s Foundation, who have a long history of supporting women’s organizations across Canada.
