Amplify Change Strengthening Grant

Strengthening grants support particular, usually time-limited, projects (usually 6-24 months) that seek to engage and contribute to bringing about change in one or more of the priority themes of AmplifyChange.

Strengthening grants range from EUR40,000 – EUR100,000.

We receive strong competition for Strengthening grants. Therefore, we encourage applicants to provide realistic budgets to match their proposed approach, and not just apply for the maximum amount available.

We will not consider grants exceeding EUR100,000 in budget.

There may be a possibility of extending the period of support. This will be advised at a later date to successful applicants, and will be subject to performance.   

Who and what are Strengthening grants for?

Strengthening grants are intended to do what their name suggests – to support and strengthen the work of small to medium civil society organisations, partnerships and coalitions who are operating at a local, community, district or national level.

Strengthening grants are also intended to help strengthen the organisational and technical capacity of groups; we understand that this enables groups to better implement projects that are aiming to secure specific change.  

See eligible countries.

What was the last Strengthening grant call for?

The last Strengthening grant call focused on supporting the advocacy efforts of civil society organisations seeking to bring about positive policy and reform in AmplifyChange priority thematic areas.  

We can provide support to cover costs related to:
  • Implementing specific activities in line with one or more of the AmplifyChange thematic areas
  • Staff costs including support staff
  • Technical assistance costs
  • Travel costs associated with the project objectives and activities
  • Organisational capacity building and strengthening support including staff training and development
  • Activity Monitoring & Evaluation costs
  • Indirect project support costs. These are expenses which are incurred in the support of operational activities including, for example, rent, shared utility costs and audit fees.
