Where do you go to find funding for gender equality and women focused projects? At a time when support for women's rights and gender equality initiatives is declining across many development sectors, women's groups and organisations need to know where to turn to for funds. This resource has been put together to meet this need. It is divided into five sections: Women's Funds (those dedicated to gender-equality and women-focused rights projects), Foundations, International Development Agencies, Prizes, and on-line Directories. The Women's Fund section provides website links, contact information for the funder along with information on what types of projects are funded, size of grants and applicant criteria. For the other sections, website links are given as well as a brief description of the type of issues that the funder is interested in.
