FRIDA – The Young Feminist Fund is the only youth-led fund focused exclusively on supporting global young feminist activism to advance social justice movements and agendas. FRIDA was created to bring new resources and new opportunities to young women and trans youth globally. They believe that supporting young feminists is key to the expansion, rejuvenation and sustainability of women’s movements and organizations and promote and work towards the safety, equality, justice, rights and dignity of girls, women and other marginalized groups.
Groups founded or led by young women or trans youth (under 30 years) that are committed to:
- Advancing and defending women’s rights from a feminist perspective and improving the lives of young women at local, national, regional or international levels;
- Groups, networks, or collectives based in the Global South (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, The Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean and Central, Southern, Eastern Europe and Caucuses and Central Asia);
- Groups founded in the past 5 years (i.e. your group was formed between 2010 – 2014).
FRIDA makes grants of up to 4,000 USD. They are flexible grants that can be used for general support and/or projects to be used over a period of 12 months and are open to renewal. FRIDA recognizes the value of general support and encourages groups to prioritize resources according to their own needs; for example some groups may use funds to cover staff, administration, or organizational costs while others may use funds to support project related costs.
