The Robert Carr Fund for civil society networks




The Robert Carr Fund for civil society networks is pleased to announce an open Request for Proposals (RFP) 2024 for the funding period 2025-2027.

Through this RFP, the Robert Carr Fund invites global and regional civil society networks and consortia of networks led by, and/or serving inadequately served populations to apply for a grant to support their core funding and activity needs for a three-year period (2025-2027).

RCF aims to further the objectives of the Fund’s Strategic Plan 2025-2030 and recognizes that programming to strengthen social enablers, human rights and gender equality, as well as responses led by communities of ISPs, are complex, and require longer-term investments. Therefore, the Fund intends, in this funding cycle, to support continuity, so that well-performing existing partners can build on their achievements. At the same time, the Fund wishes to encourage applications from new, emerging networks, especially those which represent populations and regions which are current under-served in the fund portfolio.


To be eligible for the 2025-2027 grant, applicants must:

  • Address the health, social inclusion and wellbeing of inadequately served populations (ISPs);

  • Be a civil society network and/or a consortium of civil society networks;

  • Operate regionally and/or globally;

  • Be from the civil society sector; and

  • Be led by ISPs. 

Note: Networks/consortia which are not led by ISPs are also eligible. RCF recognizes that in some contexts some ISP groups experience greater challenges to ISP leadership e.g. prisoners, migrants and children. However, where ISP leadership exists, these networks will be prioritized. Furthermore, non-ISP led networks are also eligible but must demonstrate meaningful engagement of ISPs in the work of the organization.
