Guidelines for the European Women’s Lobby Relationships with Funders

The objective of these updated Guidelines (February 2018) is to enable the creation of sound partnership between the EWL and funders, with the aim to advance women’s rights and gender equality all over Europe. These updated Guidelines aim to extend the potential for EWL to access funds from commercial firms in ways that do not contravene principles of prime concern to the EWL.
