Opportunity grantee, Kenya
We will consider applications from civil society organisations working in all countries that are eligible for the Opportunity grant. (See map and list below). If you can't see if a country is highlighted in the map, please check the list for confirmation.
Please note: we only accept applications in English and French.
We will accept applications from organisations that are not registered or have a bank account because we recognise that some organisations are still new and in some contexts there are security risks associated with registration. But please note that unregistered organisations that have applications successfully recommended for funding will still need to fulfil certain requirements to undergo due diligence and financial assessments. One requirement will be to obtain a letter of recommendation from a known AmplifyChange partner. We would encourage unregistered groups who apply for an AmplifyChange opportunity grant to start the registration process as soon as possible during the application stage.
Civil society organisations (CSOs) located in one of our eligible countries are welcome to apply.
CSOs can include:
For more information on how to describe an organisation, please refer to our organisation definitions - it is the last question in the How to Apply - FAQ section.
Yes! We will accept applications from organisations that are not registered and do not have a bank account because we recognise that some organisations are still new and in some contexts there are security risks associated with registration. But please note that unregistered organisations that have applications successfully recommended for funding may need to fulfil certain registration requirements following due diligence and financial assessments. Regarding registration and bank accounts:
Both registration and banking are important to organisations in obtaining grant funding. Having a formal registration and banking operation will support any applications for funds from other donors.
Where organisations are small or unregistered sometimes they choose to apply as a sub-grantee of another organisation which is registered and has its own bank account.
AmplifyChange is happy to support applications in this form. The partner should however be aware that the lead partner must take full responsibility and bear liability for the grant. We would expect the lead partner to have responsibility for oversight of the sub-grant and to complete basic due diligence to ensure they know who they are working with.
The full delivery chain including any subgrants should be made clear during application and due diligence.
Opportunity grants can be up to a maximum of EUR10,000. There is no lower limit, it is possible to apply for less, but EUR10,000 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.
