Groups will access unrestricted funds to support girls and women* in exercising their right to play, thus advancing gender justice in sport at all levels, from the grassroots to the global.

You can download the application form as a PDF in case you would like to have a look at it beforehand.
The ONSIDE Fund will provide unrestricted re-grants of up to $10,000 USD to groups that meet the eligibility criteria.
For how long?
ONSIDE’s mission is to drive a sustained feminist movement that re-imagines and transforms sport. We understand that such transformative work takes time.
The ONSIDE Fund aspires to establish a renewal process for the first cohort of re-grantees, but not all groups supported will automatically secure additional investment in future rounds. If additional resources are available, they will be able to participate in a renewal process to continue advancing gender justice in sport.
Besides financial support, the ONSIDE Fund, as a continual initiative, is committed to creating a long-term community-engagement platform. Through a digital learning hub, the ONSIDE Fund will create dialogue spaces for re-grantees to mobilise a global community that shares learnings, challenges and successes. The participation of organisations in this learning hub will not be limited to their re-grant period.
