Call for proposals: UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, deadline 4 Nov 2020

Dear friends,

The United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women is accepting applications for its 24th grant cycle (2020). Civil society organizations are invited to submit grant proposals for a minimum of US$50,000 up to a maximum of US$1 million for a period of three years.

This year, the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) is seeking applications from civil society organizations working on the front lines of the COVID-19 response and recovery to address and respond to violence against women and girls in the context of the current pandemic.

The funding will focus on responses to and prevention of violence against women and girls taking into account the intersectional marginalization of women in context of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly acknowledging the increased risk of violence for some groups including indigenous women, women with disabilities, older women, domestic workers and women without access to technology.

Applications from women’s rights, women-led, and small women’s organizations will be prioritized, in recognition of them being the driving force of the ending violence against women and girls agenda, as well as being at the forefront of reaching at-risk women and girls and survivors at the grassroots level.

The application deadline is 4 November 2020Click here to apply

The complete Call for Proposals detailing criteria, eligibility requirements and application guidelines is available at: or via the UN Trust Fund homepage.

Best regards,
UN Women
