The ONSIDE Fund will provide funding to grassroots, community-based organisations, collectives and groups led by girls and women and governed by feminist principles. The ONSIDE Fund is looking to support feminist organising and hyper local solutions. Eligible groups will be asked to describe how their work contributes to the vision and mission of ONSIDE. This fund actively looks to support all cis, trans, non-binary and all other underrepresented groups and communities such as black, indigenous, mestizas, people of colour, LGBTIQ+, refugees, and migrant girls and women with or without disabilities.
Priority will be given to:
(1.) Groups clearly led by girls and young women* under the age of 30
(2.) Groups that demonstrate participatory models including meaningful leadership roles and active decision-making functions for girls and young women
(3.) Groups serving more marginalised communities including indigenous girls, trans girls
Eligible are grassroots, community-based organisations, collectives, and groups led by girls and women and governed by feminist principles. Applying organisations and collectives do not need to be registered and must have an operating budget of less than 150,000USD.
Actions can take place in various countries worldwide.
The ONSIDE Fund will provide unrestricted re-grants of up to $10,000 USD to groups that meet the eligibility criteria.
