Rosa Extends ‘Rise Fund’ Deadline to 31 January 2022
Black and minoritised-led women’s and girls’ organisations now have an extra three weeks to apply for organisational developmental funding.
Rosa has extended the closing date for applications from 10 January to 31 January for the following two reasons:
- The Rise Fund has been increased to nearly £1.2 million with an additional award of £499,000 from City Bridge Trust. Extending the deadline will allow more organisations to apply.
- Concern that the new Omicron variant will impact on the capacity of smaller organisations led by and for women.
The Rise Fund offers two-year grants of up to £40,000 to Black and minoritised-led women’s and girls’ organisations in the UK which have been established for three years or more, and which have an average income of less than £100,000 per year.
The funding is for organisational development work relating to areas such as strategy, governance, leadership, alliances and partnerships, funding, demonstrating impact and systems and processes.
To be eligible, applicants must be not-for-profit specialist organisations led by and for Black and minoritised women and girls, working across all four of Rosa’s areas of work which are: leadership and representation, safety, health and wellbeing and economic justice.
The application deadline is now 31 January 2022 (17:00).
