Robert Carr Fund for civil society networks

The Robert Carr Fund (RCF) is an innovative pooled funding mechanism. It was set up in 2012 to support global and regional civil society networks of inadequately served populations, who are disproportionately affected by HIV and experience systematic human rights violations. The RCF aims to strengthen HIV civil society networks to ensure access of inadequately served populations to health, justice, and funding. Read more about our work and grantees here.

The RCF is a participatory fund: it was established in a partnership of civil society and donors. The contributing donors to the Fund are the governments of the UK, Netherlands, United States, Norway, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The RCF is governed democratically by the International Steering Committee consisting of both members of civil society and representatives of funders.
