Title: War on Want full funding application, 2002
Date: April 2002
Subject: Anti-Privatisation Forum - APF;
Comic Relief;
War on Want - WOW
Description: The document constitutes the Anti-Privatisation Forum's (APF's) full application for funding to War on Want (WOW). From its inception in 2000 until 2002, the APF received no formal donor/outside funding, relying on occasional project donations from NGOs as well as from its own activists and member groupings. The first attempt to secure formal organisational donor funding in 2001 was unsuccessful, but in 2002 an application was made to the British charity, Comic Relief, through the offices of a progressive London-based NGO, War on Want (WOW) for a multi-year grant (covering years 2002-2005) to cover basic organisational, operational and project related costs. This application was successful and from 2003, allowed the APF to secure funds for opening and staffing its own office, carrying out various educational activities, supporting the activities and mobilisations of its community affiliates, providing some legal support as well as engaging in APF specific actions and solidarity initiatives. Despite the fact that the funds received were directly from public donations (to Comic Relief) and that War on Want always approached the relationship with the APF (in both this first funding phase and the second phase from 2005-2008) as a mutual partnership, the issue of donor funding and its associated impacts on the APF were always an intense topic for discussion and debate within its ranks.
