The Maypole Fund was set up in 1986 by women involved in the peace movement, especially with Greenham Common. Today, they are a group of feminists coming from various political backgrounds.

The Maypole Fund seeks applications from women only for projects and activities for any of the following:
> anti-militarism;
> action against the arms trade;
> action against nuclear weapons and weapons systems;
> creating a culture of peace and nonviolence and the prevention of conflict and war;
> action to support disarmament policies, processes and related initiatives.

- Young women’s groups/individuals and lesbian groups/individuals;
- Activities or projects not yet started;
- Women who do not have access to other sources of funding or whose projects find it difficult to attract funding from elsewhere;
- Imaginative/creative activities;
- Individual and small women’s groups over larger established women’s groups.

Read the guidelines carefully before applying.
