Mama Cash’s 2019 grantmaking window is open from 1 February to 31 March.
Mama Cash will receive Letters of Interest from applicants who are not current grantee-partners from 1 February - 31 March 2019, 11:59 pm CEST*. Groups that apply during this grantmaking window will receive a response from Mama Cash by 20 May 2019.
Mama Cash supports ambitious feminist and women's rights organisations and initiatives led by and for women, girls, trans and intersex people. We advise groups wishing to apply to consider the Mama Cash selection criteria and priority.
Mama Cash is a fund with limited resources. More groups apply for funding than we can fund. This means also, unfortunately, that many groups that we could fund because they meet our criteria still have to be declined. In 2018, we received 1787 funding requests of which we could approve 25 new grants (1.4% of all requests) in our portfolios of Body, Money and Voice. For 2019, we expect to approve grants to approximately 15 new groups in the Money and Voice portfolios, in addition to the planned renewal grants to current grantee-partners in all portfolios.
The application window is not relevant for current grantee-partners wishing to apply for renewal during the course of 2019.
