Date(s) - 06/01/2022


The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) is accepting applications for its 25th grant cycle (2021). Civil society organizations are invited to submit grant proposals for a minimum of US$50,000 up to a maximum of US$1,000,000 for a period of three years.

This year, the UN Trust Fund is seeking applications from civil society organizations (CSOs) with proven expertise in ending violence against women and girls focused on marginalized women and girls and those experiencing intersecting forms of discrimination. The UN Trust Fund welcomes proposals conceptualized, developed and fully implemented by civil society organizations in line with their assessments of the particular needs of their countries or communities and aligned with one (or more) of the UN Trust Fund’s three outcome areas.

The funding will focus on responses to and prevention of violence against women and girls in a rapidly changing and complex environment, and those adopting an intersectional approach in line with the “leave no one behind” principle.

Applications from women’s rights (WROs), CSOs/WROs led by and for marginalized women and girls, and CSOs/WROs with local or community-level reach will be prioritized, in recognition of them being the driving force of the ending violence against women and girls agenda, as well as being at the forefront of reaching at-risk women and girls and survivors of violence.

The application deadline is 6th January 2022.
