Mama Cash is a fully participatory grantmaker, which means that decision-making about all of the new grants has shifted from our staff to the communities with whom they work. Their multi-part participatory process for the Resilience Fund is as follows:
- – all applicants provide input and guidance on thematic issues they believe should be prioritised for funding,
- – staff screen all applications for eligibility, and
- – the COM COM, our community representative committee reviews a longlist of the top applications to discuss, deliberate, and make the final decisions on who our new grantee-partners will be. You can read more about the Resilience Fund’s participatory grant-making process here.
Mama Cash supports ambitious feminist and women’s, girl’s, and trans people’s and intersex people’s rights organisations and initiatives led by and for women, girls, trans people, and intersex people from anywhere in the world. We advise groups wishing to apply to closely consider the Mama Cash selection criteria and priority.
