Astraea launched the Intersex Human Rights Fund in 2015 to honor the resilience, creativity and growth of intersex activism and to ensure the human rights of intersex people. We support organizations, projects and timely campaigns led by intersex activists working to ensure the human rights, bodily autonomy, physical integrity and self-determination of intersex people.
Given the dearth of funding to intersex issues globally, intersex groups or projects based anywhere in the world are eligible for support.
We accept proposals in English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese and Russian. We make grants with the support of our Intersex Fund Advisory Board, a body of six intersex activists covering all regions of the world who inform our grantmaking strategies and decisions.
How to Apply: We are currently not accepting submissions for the Intersex Fund. Our third grantmaking cycle is underway, and grants will be announced in September 2017. Astraea will launch its fourth call for proposals for intersex groups in January 2018; please check back then for more information.
