Great read:

Key points
Independent funders cannot fill the gap left by budget cuts – but they can play a key role in building new models of social support that prioritise prevention, early intervention and building cross-sector models of change.
The ecology approach requires funders to turn their differences into strength by being clearer about where they have impact and comparative advantage in relation to their peers.
Devolution is an opportunity to build new models of social change – but this will require independent funders to work closely together to better understand their impact and potential in a place, and learn the lessons of Scottish and Welsh devolution so far.

We invite applications for grants from any individual or organization in thirteen eligible southern African countries to support work that addresses discrimination against lesbian women or transgender people.
To be eligible for a grant you must be:
A lesbian woman or a transgender person, or an organization that is led by lesbian women or transgender people; or
A general LGBTI organization that addresses discrimination against transgender people or lesbian women.
Grant applications will be accepted in all four grant categories listed above. However, the grant period will be a maximum of one year only, ending on 30 September 2016.
The maximum amount for Hungwe / Fish Eagle grants will therefore be R150,000 over 12 months and the maximum amount for Mosu / Umbrella Tree grants will be R300,000 over 12 months.
The thirteen eligible countries from which grant applications will be accepted are Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Grant allocations will be made in a two-step process.

Your concept proposal must be submitted in the format provided by the Other Foundation (Form G1), which you can also download on this page.
All the concept proposals received will be assessed by an independent panel made up of peers of grant applicants. These peer reviewers will recommend the concept proposals that will be taken to the second stage of the grant making process.
In the second stage, the recommended applicants will be invited to develop a full grant proposal for submission to the Other Foundation’s board of trustees for funding. The board of trustees will make the final decision about grant allocations.
The Foundation has ZAR 1.5 million for grant allocations in this round of grant making. Decisions about which concept proposals will be taken to the second stage of the process, will be made within three weeks of the closing date for the submission of concept proposals.

COMING OUT OF CONCRETE CLOSETS: A REPORT ON BLACK & PINK’S NATIONAL LGBTQ PRISONER SURVEY
During the latter months of 2014, Black & Pink, conducted a survey of our prisoner membership. Nearly 1,200 prisoners responded to our 133-question survey, producing the largest ever dataset available on the experiences of LGBTQ prisoners in the country. The intent of this survey was to get some truth out from behind prison walls about the experiences of LBGTQ prisoners in the United States. Our report aims to share that truth by elevating prisoner voices, stories, and leadership to inspire immediate collective action.

Astraea - Research Consultant - LGBTI Rights Funding in the Global South and East

GPP Seeks Consultant for Bilateral Funding Research
Project BriefClick for RFP
Global Philanthropy Project seeks an experienced consultant or consulting team to produce a report presenting case studies of global LGBTI rights work that is funded by bilateral, multilateral and/or other public and private mechanisms. This research report is intended to identify and discuss government funding case studies that yield good practices, lessons learned, and opportunities about funding LBGTI groups and movements internationally. It will include an appendix and glossary that helps readers understand the diversity of funding modalities and be better prepared to discuss their nuances together at future joint convenings.
The primary audience for the report is bilateral and multilateral agencies that are currently supporting or exploring support of LGBTI rights activism in order to achieve their development and/or human rights goals. Secondary audiences include public and private grantmakers (including foundations, corporate donors, philanthropy advisors, individual donors, etc.), grant-seeking civil society organizations (CSOs), and other community stakeholders.
