About the Department for International Development Jo Cox Memorial Grants
In March 2018, the Department for International Development launched the Jo Cox Memorial Grants; a £10 million fund to support organisations working on two themes close to Jo’s heart: women’s social, economic and political empowerment, and strengthening civil society capacity for early prediction of identity-based violence.
Throughout her life, Jo was concerned with what would make a real difference to the world’s most disadvantaged. Jo was a passionate advocate for the power of the UK’s aid agenda and the Jo Cox Memorial Grants are therefore a fitting tribute to her life and a powerful way to continue her humanitarian legacy.
