What we do not fund


  • Groups whose mission and/or primary focus are not the promotion of women’s, girls’, trans people's or intersex people’s human rights
  • Groups whose work focuses primarily on improving the lives of individual women, girls, trans people and/or intersex people without addressing the conditions that give rise to the injustices they face
  • Groups that actively seek to deny the rights of certain women, girls, trans and intersex people, based on who they are, the work they do or on their position in society
  • Groups whose primary purpose is development work, humanitarian assistance, or services, such as:
    • Income-generating activities and credit programmes
    • (In)formal education, literacy programmes and traditional skills training
    • Providing social, legal or health care services
  • Groups led by cis-men 
  • Groups based in the Global North that are executing programmes in or are leading partnerships with groups based in the Global South and East
  • Groups led by, or structurally or economically dependent on political parties, government agencies, or religious institutions
  • Businesses
  • We will only be supporting individuals through our new Radical Love grantmaking fund to be announced in 2022.
  • Academic research or scholarships
  • Stand-alone travel grants (costs for travel can, however, be part of broader applications provided they are consistent with the group's mission and strategies)
