Funding for Women Wage Peace
On October 19, 2016, Woman Wage Peace (WWP) concluded a two-week long march from Rosh Hanikra to Jerusalem, with a rally outside the Prime Minister’s Residence. WWP called this the “March of Hope,” demanding that “our leaders work with respect and courage towards a solution to the ongoing violent conflict, with the full participation of women in this process.”
Based on WWP’s website, donors to the organization include the European Union, New Israel Fund, Heinrich Böll Stiftung Israel (Germany), and One Voice. WWP states that it receives funding in the United States via its partner organization Ameinu.
Women Wage Peace is not transparent about the amounts received from these funders. However, NGO Monitor research was able to identify some funding amounts from 2015. The New Israel Fund provided Women Wage Peace with $18,215. The European Union’s Directorate-General for Neighborhood and Enlargement Negotiations funded a two-year grant of €476,108 along with the partner NGOs Midreshet Adam (Adam Institute for Democracy and Peace) and Itach (Women Lawyers for Social Justice). NGO Monitor was unable to find further details on funding from Heinrich Böll Stinftung Israel and One Voice.
