Feminist Fund for Climate

The Feminist Fund for Climate is a fund whose purpose is to support women founders and/or leaders of associations working for the climate. The 2024 edition is launched! Before April 24, download the required documents and send your completed application to the Foundation's e-mail address.



The submission of grant applications is done entirely online: the PDFs must be filled out and sent to the email address of the Foundation (fondation@raja.fr). All requested documents must be grouped together in a single email.

The procedure and selection criteria are detailed in the guidelines outlined in the introduction text of the Feminist Fund for the Climate.


Climate change, which causes significant damage worldwide, particularly affects women because they are the ones who primarily fetch water and cultivate the land. In fact, they represent between 45 and 60% of agricultural workers and generate the majority of agricultural production. Increasingly at the forefront, they are also the ones trying to reverse the trend by preserving fragile ecosystems. This crucial role adds to the struggle for their financial empowerment and the recognition of their rights. They face numerous obstacles, including access to property rights, gender-related inequalities, and violence resulting from these gender disparities.

The RAJA-Danièle Marcovici Foundation is convinced of the role that women have to play in the preservation of natural resources and the implementation of concrete solutions.

Through the Feminist Fund for Climate, the RAJA-Danièle Marcovici Foundation provides financial support to associations that promote the role and actions of women in environmental protection and the fight against climate change. This includes promoting sustainable agricultural practices, access to sustainable energy, natural resource management, waste management, and promoting “green” entrepreneurship. Special attention is given to women who bring innovations and adaptation strategies to preserve natural resources and biodiversity.
