Strengthening grant - FAQs

I have received funding from donors associated with AmplifyChange before, will this affect the chances of my organisation receiving funding for a Strengthening grant?

This information is only for our records. It helps to shape our understanding of our grant portfolio. It will not play a part in the decision making for Strengthening grants.  

I'm applying on behalf of a coalition, is it possible to support organisational strengthening for multiple organisations and/or the common capacity of the coalition, such as a secretariat, or can we only budget for strengthening of the lead applicant?

All options are possible. An application made on behalf of a coalition could invest in the organisational strengthening of a specific organisation, multiple organisations within a coalition or the common infrastructure of a coalition. 

Our organisation is new - how does this affect our ability to apply for funding as we do not have 3 years audited accounts?

A new organisation can apply provided that it is able to meet all the eligibility criteria. If you cannot provide audited or approved accounts for the past three years, we may ask you to provide other information to satisfy us that you are able to manage the grant.

We are applying as a coalition. We would like to know whether AmplifyChange require documentation on the lead applicant or all coalition members in the application? 

AmplifyChange encourages coalitions to apply. The application should be submitted by the lead organisation and so we need uploaded financial and eligibility documentation on the lead. Typically, this group is the most suitable to manage the finances and coordination of the coalition. In the application form we have a specific section asking applicants to provide information about the coalition and coalition members. Please complete this section and provide as much useful information as you can about the wider coalition. You are welcome to upload further documentation on the coalition or on the other members of the coalition, but this is not essential.

Does AmplifyChange only support organisations with certain annual budget limits?

AmplifyChange is not applying a maximum organisational budget or revenue ceiling to the eligibility criteria for this round of Strengthening grant applications. This grant is intended for small-to-medium civil society organisations from sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
