FUNDING: Rosa – grants of up to £10,000 for specialist women’s organisations

Rosa is a grantmaking charity that funds grassroots women’s organisations to help to make the UK a fairer, safer place for women.

We root our support in the organisations working closely with women and girls. They’re the ones campaigning to secure equal power for women in politics and public life, and ensuring more women live free from violence. They’re advocating for better healthcare for women and girls, and pushing for economic stability.

Rosa’s Covid-19 Response Fund (Small Grants)

Rosa’s Covid-19 Response Fund (Small Grants) is now open and will provide grants of up to £10,000 for specialist women’s organisations across the UK.

The purpose of this first stage response fund is to provide quick and straightforward grants with very basic eligibility criteria. We think it’s vitally important that this is an open call for women’s organisations to apply for what they identify as a short-term funding need. There is no deadline for applications – we will consider them on a rolling basis from 5pm on Friday 5th June. We will do our best to notify applicants of the decision within approximately two weeks of submitting an application. 

Rosa particularly welcomes proposals from women’s organisations that: 

  • Address the critical needs of women and girls that miss out the most, including: marginalised populations, BME women, LGBTQ+ women and girls, women and girls with disabilities, older women, homeless women, survivors of gender violence, women in prison and ex-offenders, and other underserved and disadvantaged groups of women.
  • Operate in less economically resilient towns, cities and rural areas within the UK.
