Gender Fund

This open call is an invitation to Global South and locally-rooted organizations – civil society groups, think tanks and academic institutions, professional associations and networks, women’s rights groups, and feminist and allied movements, among others. Through this Fund, Co-Impact will support initiatives that are working to make systems just and inclusive and advance women’s leadership at all levels. Apply now and join in moving towards the common goal of transforming systems for women and girls to rise and thrive in leadership positions at all levels – in the household, in their communities, and the highest national institutions.

Co-Impact is excited to announce its Open Call for Country-level Grants to advance gender equality. They envision a gender-equal world where all people can live fulfilling lives – where systems and societies are just and inclusive, and women and girls belong in all places where decisions are made. They will provide three grant types – Anchor, Domain, and Catalytic – each with its own purpose, range, and requirement for selection.

Grant Types

Co-Impact has three Grant Types that will support and nurture promising initiatives that focus on:

Systems change with the aim to improve gender-equitable outcomes and women’s leadership in the health, education, and economic opportunity sectors.

Institutional change to advance women’s ability to enter, rise to, and thrive in leadership positions in the academic and professional domains of law and/or economics.

  • Anchor Grants: This grant will support systems change initiatives that aim to improve gender-equitable outcomes and women’s leadership in the health, education, and/or economic opportunity sectors. Each grant will support proven ideas to be ‘adopted at scale’ to benefit at least one million people. The estimated range of Anchor Grants is between US $5-20 million over a period of 5 to 6 years.
  • Domain Grants: This grant will support initiatives that focus on institutional change to advance women’s ability to enter, rise to, and thrive in leadership positions in the academic and professional domains of law and/or economics. The estimated range of Domain Grants is between US $2-4 million over a period of 5 to 6 years.
  • Catalytic Grants: This grant will nurture promising initiatives that are either in the Pre-Anchor stage (focusing on health, education, and/or economic opportunity) or the Pre-Domain stage (focusing on domains of law and/or economics). This grant type does not support new, experimental ideas; it will support early-stage initiatives with a well-developed idea that has been tried in a specific context and would benefit from exploring pathways for sustained change at scale. 100% of Catalytic grants will go to women-led organizations in the Global South.  The estimated range of Catalytic Grants is between US $1-3 million over a period of 3 to 4 years.
