Evaluated projects presented at our Project Evenings
Giving Women seeks to empower women by supporting projects created for and/or by women. We invite organisations to submit their projects. Eligible projects will then undergo a selection process in accordance with Giving Women’s criteria.
Giving Women is not a grant maker. Although many of our Project Circles have raised funds for the projects they support, we give priority to projects to which our members can contribute their time, expertise or skills. Past project circles worked to improve organisations’ documentation and communication materials, helped broaden organisations’ recognition in Switzerland, collaborated to improve governance structure, etc.
Two to three projects are selected at each of our selection rounds, which take place twice a year, and are then presented at a Project Evening. During the Project Evening, Project Circles are created for each project. These are made up of the project leader and Giving Women members who are interested in working with the project to achieve a set of specified goals.
Below are the projects which have been supported by Giving Women since 2009. The first four projects listed are on-going. If you are interested in joining any of these projects, please contact us via email
