AmplifyChange Strategic Grants: Supporting Organisations that Work Globally and Regionally to help Shape Policies

Deadline: 25 July 2017

AmplifyChange is currently inviting applicants from eligible organisations for its Strategic grants program with an aim to support organisations that work globally and regionally to advocate and help shape policy and strategy on the priority themes of AmplifyChange.

Priority Themes

  • Intersections between gender-based violence and barriers to safe abortion: Approaches that strengthen advocacy for safe abortion, including responding to the intersections between gender-based violence and barriers to accessing a safe abortion.
  • Challenging stigma, discrimination, attitudes and laws: Support to the development of LGBTI rights movements, focusing on supporting organisations in parts of the world where movements are effectively non-existent or most underdeveloped.
  • Sexual health of young people: Systematic approaches to mainstreaming comprehensive sexuality education, including its systematic implementation within schools and out-of-school approaches in regions with the weakest commitment to comprehensive sexuality education.
    • Menstrual hygiene, including the role of advocacy in expanding access to sanitary products, removing stigma around menstruation and the role of menstrual hygiene management information and empowerment in comprehensive sexuality education.
  • Access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services: Approaches that build advocacy movements that respond to strengthen SRHR and access to SRH services for people living with disability.

Grant Information

Strategic grants will be between EUR 550,000 to EUR 2 million over 2 years.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Strategic grants are open to all registered civil society organizations.
  • The applicant must have a proven track record and capability in advocating to strengthen sexual and reproductive health and rights within global or regional level processes, through the support they provide to networks, partners and organisations working at country level.
  • The applicant must provide demonstrable evidence of the ability to operate in more than one geographic region (regions defined as West Africa, East Africa, Southern Africa, Central Africa or South Asia).
  • The applicant must be an established civil society organisation with a transparent governance structure, and will be required to submit, as part of their full application, their
    • organisational strategic plan and
    • a results framework of expected results and outcomes.
  • The organisation’s average annual expenditure (taking the last 3 years to make the average) must be at least twice the amount the organisation is applying for; so for example if an organisation is applying for EUR600,000, its average 2014, 2015, 2016 annual expenditure must be at least EUR1,200,000.
  • The applicant must respond to the two essential areas for action and at least 2 out of the 6 other areas of action.
  • Organisations may submit up to two applications as a lead organisation; but there is a limit of one Strategic grant per lead organisation in this funding round. It is possible for an organisation that is awarded a Strategic grant as a lead organisation to also be indicated as a sub-contractor on another Strategic grant led by another organisation.
  • Previous applicants are welcome to apply. However, given the specific criteria defined in this second round of the Strategic grant, previous applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a new expression of interest that aligns with this particular guidance.
  • All current AmplifyChange grantees are welcome to apply and will be considered equally in all respects.
