Yes! We are looking to support grassroots groups that find it difficult to access funding, and understand that it may not have been possible for you to register.
Your organisation will still be considered and, if successful at application stage, will be subject to the same due diligence and financial assessments that apply to all organisations.
If it is possible for you to become registered, we will support you in this process before your project starts. If it is not possible for you to become registered, you will need to nominate a fiscal sponsor.
AmplifyChange disbursements can only be made to an account in the name of the entity (not an individual) applying for funds.
However, if you do not have a bank account, you can still apply for an Opportunity grant, but we suggest you nominate a sponsoring organisation to help manage grant funding - an organisation that is prepared and able to help manage grant funds on your behalf.
We may need to conduct due diligence and financial assessments on your organisation and on the sponsoring organisation.
Opportunity grants can be up to a maximum of 40,000 Euros. There is no lower limit, it is possible to apply for less, but 40,000 Euros is the maximum.
The maximum duration of funded projects is 1 year. There is no minimum duration.
Yes. There is no limit to the number of applications that one organisation can submit.
No. Whilst it is often beneficial for an organisation to have a formal structure, we recognise that in many situations this is not possible or appropriate. But we do ask you to tell us how decisions are made in your organisation.
