Emerging models of participatory philanthropy: FRIDA - the young feminist fund - Eldis
Emerging models of participatory philanthropy: FRIDA - the young feminist fund - Eldis: This article explains the innovative process being implemented in the foundation of a new fund for young feminist organisations around the world, FRIDA, which aims to cultivate and support a global community of young feminists. Born from a collective call by feminists at the 2008 AWID Forum, the fund seeks to close the significant gap in funding available for feminist organisations, particularly those led by young feminists. FRIDA also aims to work toward a future where women and girls are free from violence and poverty; emphasising that for such a vision to succeed effectively, efforts must include young women.
