Founded in 2008, the Mediterranean Women's Fund seeks to strengthen the women’s movement in the Mediterranean region by providing small grants (up to 5000 euros), organizing strategic reflection meeting and capacity-building trainings.

In 2012 the Mediterranean Women's Fund has begun to support Syrian women’s organizations (one grant in 2012 and another one in 2013). This year, refusing to stand by and watch the destruction of Syrian society the MedWF has decided to dedicate its solidarity gala in Paris to the Syrian women and the fund raised to Syrian women’s organizations.

We are happy to invite Syrian women's organizations to apply before June 15th 2014. Do not hesitate to pass the information to other organizations that you know are in deep need.


The Mediterranean Women's Fund's basic criteria are:
• Groups of women working together;
• Organizations based in the Mediterranean region;
• Organizations that demonstrate a clear commitment to women’s equality and women’s human rights;
• Organizations that are led and directed by women (women must fill all or most of the leadership roles).
