Funding New Solutions to Advance Gender Justice in Sports
Their voices will be heard!
It fills our hearts with joy to see the number of girls and women-led groups advancing gender justice in sport at all levels, from the grassroots to the global. During its first call, the ONSIDE Fund received 836 applications from 105 countries.
Today, we are proud to announce that the ONSIDE Fund will support over 30 groups from more than 25 different countries, re-granting a total of $200.000 USD. Whether you are skateboarding over the hills of Nepal or fighting gender stereotypes one weight lift at the time, we applaud each of your efforts to reclaim the playing field.
Due to the amount of applications received, this first round of funding was an incredibly competitive process. We received many more applications than expected and unfortunately cannot fund all of them. The ONSIDE Advisory Committee (OAC) reviewed and selected groups based on the Fund’s eligibility criteria as well as other considerations including geography, thematic focus, target group sport, and group size.
We would like to thank our partners and ONSIDE’s Advisory Committee for their invaluable contributions as we launched ONSIDE. We are excited to welcome new partners who will join us for the second round of the ONSIDE Fund next year and look forward to bringing on board even more partners to grow the movement in 2021.
