HER Fund is a registered charitable fund, runs by and for women, founded in 2004 in Hong Kong. They support initiatives that defend and promote women’s rights. They aim to advance local philanthropic support to women’s rights work in Hong Kong through fund-raising, grant-making, capacity building and public education.
HER Fund did a strategic review on our grant-making strategy and effectiveness this year according to the social change. From the past 3 years’ experiences, HER Fund see the need to maintain their support to the less funded and least resourceful women’s initiatives. In order to strategically make grants for bringing greater impact to advance women’s human rights, HER Fund decided to focus our grant-making on the following 4 themes from 2015 to 2018
1) Freedom from Violence
2) Freedom from Discrimination
3) Freedom from Poverty
4) Promote Women’s Civil Participation
You can find the details of the above 4 themes from “Guide to Application“. Meanwhile, HER Fund also change their grant giving cycle to twice a year.
