What is worth remembering when preparing a MiniGrant application?

When preparing the application for a MiniGrant, remember about the conditions for participation in the competition and about the Fund’s priorities. In your application, please include information that will allow others to understand how you meet the conditions for participation in the competition and to what extent you fit into the Fund’s priorities. Remember that the purpose of the Fund is to support groups and organizations that identify with the feminist movement. When describing your organization and group, avoid pasting in ready-made fragments of project applications or standard descriptions of your group or organization. Also remember that your application will be read and evaluated by other groups and organizations applying for the MiniGrant, so use simple and understandable language and describe specifically what you want to do.

 

What is worth knowing about feminist MiniGrants?

The Feminist Fund is Polish institution that supports only activities conducted by women, girls, transgender, non-binary, intersex, and queer persons. We finance initiatives that build a better world for all of us.

We are committed to supporting different feminist initiatives undertaken by non-male persons in various places in Poland. It is important for us to find groups and organizations that operate on the principles of self-organization, make decisions by discussing them together, and are also active within a specific local community and outside large urban centers.
FemFund also prioritizes supporting groups that are particularly at risk of discrimination and violence, including, for example, migrant and refugee women, persons with disabilities, the deaf, women experiencing violence, transgender persons, etc.

The resources from the Feminist Fund can be used for any activity. The persons who submit applications for MiniGrant will decide who will receive support. Therefore, applying for a MiniGrant means participating in the selection of other ideas that will be funded.

 

Rules for applying

If you have an idea for a feminist action, we invite you to participate in next editions of the Feminist Fund’s MiniGrants. Non-governmental organizations and informal groups may apply for grants of a maximum amount of PLN 4,900.

Below you can read the rules for participation in the 5th edition of MiniGrants and the Fund’s priorities in .docx and .pdf formats (they open in a new page tab).
