Ending child marriage requires long-term, sustainable funding. Yet there is currently not enough available, and it can be particularly hard for community-based and national organisations to access it.
Girls Not Brides supports our member organisations to identify funding opportunities, connect with donors and build their fundraising skills.
We work with donors and partners to advocate for greater funding to address child marriage and bring their attention to funding gaps and evidence of effective investments.
To learn about how Girls Not Brides is funded, see our About Us section.
Through our membership, we know that more guidance on how to fundraise effectively is needed. Here you will find a comprehensive toolkit, tips from donors and member organisations, and other resources to strengthen your fundraising.
Fundraising can be time-consuming and challenging, especially if you are a small organisation. On this page, we identify potential donors and opportunities to support your fundraising around child marriage and related issues
