Rethink Ireland Equality Fund: The Equality Fund 2020 – 2023

Rethink Ireland Equality Fund: The Equality Fund 2020 – 2023 has been launched to support organisations and groups that empower marginalised communities and tackle systemic inequality. This initiative is supported by the Government of Ireland and the Peter Kinney & Lisa Sandquist Foundation.

The Equality Fund will focus on three strands:

  • Empowering Women: This strand supports projects to empower more women from minority communities into employment. This strand will also fund projects which support women who are employed on an informal basis, in low paying jobs, or who find it difficult to assert their rights.
  • Strengthening Communities: This strand supports projects which empower communities to advocate for themselves. They will strengthen equality in Ireland through community work and collective action.
  • Building Equality Together: This strand supports projects or networks to work together to enhance equality. We seek applications from two or more organisations who have come together to promote equality. This includes existing networks and collaborations.

Applications for the Equality Fund should be submitted online by CLICKING HERE by 5 pm on Monday 14th September 2020.
