The Girls First Fund (GFF) is requesting applications for grants to prevent and respond to child marriage and early unions. In 2019, GFF will make one-year (12-month), core support and project support grants of up to USD $50,000 in six pilot locations.
The Girls First Fund will fund a variety of strategies and types of organizations whose work is critical to ending child marriage and early unions. We are most interested in approaches that support local solutions within the local context and that illustrate how girls, their families, and communities are involved in the design and implementation of the approach.
The Girls First Fund is committed to reaching new and emerging organizations, as well as organizations with little or no access to larger donors. Click on your country to learn more about the application process and to apply for a grant:
