Rosa’s Rise Fund provides organisational development funding for Black and minoritised-led women’s and girls’ organisations across the UK. With this funding they want to these organisations to be in a stronger position to survive, thrive and grow into the future.

The funding is for organisational development work relating to areas such as strategy, governance, leadership, alliances and partnerships, funding, demonstrating impact and systems and processes. They particularly welcome proposals from organisations that are user-led, operate in less economically resilient communities within the UK, and work with and for especially marginalised Black and minoritised women and girls.

This funding is available to specialist organisations led by and for Black and minoritised women and girls, working across all four of Rosa's areas of work. These are:

  1. Leadership and Representation
  2. Safety
  3. Health and Wellbeing
  4. Economic Justice
