Letting the Movement Decide

Publication date: 
September, 2015

This report examines the FRIDA participatory grantmaking model for women’s philanthropy.

The fund uses a model of participatory grantmaking in which the young feminist activists who apply for grants decide together who will receive funding - the first application of this model in a global context. FRIDA’s funding model is designed to fuel emerging leadership, respond dynamically to the rapidly changing on-the ground realities of the most impacted communities, offer transparency of both process and outcomes, shift traditional power dynamics in philanthropy, and function as a hub of learning and knowledge development for broader feminist and philanthropic communities.
