The Start Fund is collectively owned and managed by Start Network member agencies; all allocation and project selection decisions are made by member agencies and local in-country member agencies and partner organisations.
Any member can identify a crisis that they think is suitable for the Start Fund. An alert can be raised by a single member or by several members acting together. Members are highly encouraged to coordinate and collaborate at the first stage of raising an alert. Members can do so by utilising the relevant Start Fund Country Skype Group to coordinate with members.
