1) Objective

CGEF will increase access to climate finance for gender-responsive, women-led, and women-benefiting organizations that address climate change. Launched by U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), with the support of Amazon, CGEF aims to reach a goal of US$60Mn in capital from corporations, foundations, bi/multilaterals, and other funders. CGEF seeks to harness the power of collective action to bridge the gender-climate finance gap and is thrilled to have Amazon, Visa Foundation and Reckitt as Founding Members.

  • Climate- and gender-smart emerging impact investment funds (and investment vehicles), with strong preference for women-led funds/vehicles: Grants seek to support investment funds and vehicles aligned with the 2X Criteria and that advance climate solutions and increase gender equality by developing, scaling, and investing in climate mitigation and adaptation businesses and solutions.
  • Network organizations and intermediaries supporting women entrepreneurs working in climate action, with preference for entities operating in Africa: Grants seek to support intermediaries that facilitate financing or provide other forms of support to women entrepreneurs working at the frontlines of climate action (such as women entrepreneur networks, incubators, accelerators, business service providers, and field building associations).

2) Eligibility

CGEF aims to increase access to finance for investment vehicles, businesses, and community-based organizations developing and scaling women-led and women-benefiting climate solutions in global emerging markets where USAID operates.

3) Location

Actions can take place where USAID operates.

4) Budget

CGEF is targeting grant awards of US$500,000 to US$1,000,000 with a total funding available of US$5,000,o00.

5) Application

Applications should be submitted online using the application portal on or before the indicated RFP submission deadline (May 17, 2024 at 11:59 pm GMT+1).
