Network grant

Network Grants contribute to the development of stronger and more inclusive movements advocating for sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR). They ensure a movement is resourced and contribute to equitable and effective allocation of resources across a movement.

Network grant

Concept note open 11 June - 2 July

The duration of a Network Grant is 2 to 3 years for applications from GBP 225,000 to GBP 600,000. We have expanded our eligibility criteria to include smaller-sized networks for a more inclusive approach to supporting grassroots initiatives. Networks can be complex to manage, and we are looking for organisations with strong management systems already in place or to be put in place during the grant. We encourage you to be realistic and apply for the amount that is best for your organisation and project.

 

Grant amount £225,000 - 600,000

Grant duration (years) 2-3

Eligibility Criteria

All applicants must meet the general eligibility criteria as well as the criteria detailed below. The eligibility criteria refers solely to the lead applicant organisation.

  • The applicant organisation must be registered and implementing a project in one of AmplifyChange’s eligible countries. You must have a registration status that enables you to receive funds from foreign sources.
  • The applicant organisation must have a bank account.
  • The applicant organisation must have transparent governance structures and will be required to submit, as part of your full application, your (i) organisational strategic plan and governance structure; (ii) a results framework of expected results and outcomes (linked to AmplifyChange’s Theory of Change); (iii) annual audited accounts for past three years.
  • The annual value of the Network Grant cannot exceed 50% of your organisation’s average annual expenditure over the past three years. For example, if you apply for GBP 300,000 over 3 years, the annual value of the grant is GBP 100,000. Therefore, the average annual expenditure of the applicant organisation over the past three years must be GBP 200,000 or more.

  • Applicant organisations can only submit one application as the lead; however, you can be downstream partners on other applications.

What are we looking for?

Key approaches

AmplifyChange funds advocacy. We are focused on achieving long-term, sustainable change, and we recognise that collective actions are the best way to achieve change. Understanding how you connect to the wider movement and demonstrating how you are working towards the same change is critical.

We are particularly interested to fund projects that:

  • are developed jointly with network members. The proposal development, share of the budget and governance of the network should reflect the participation and involvement of the whole network.
  • propose an effective approach to ongoing monitoring and relationship-building with civil society organisations. This may include:
  • Inclusive leadership, as successful advocacy benefits most from a combination of SRHR expertise and diverse connections. We seek to support efforts to coordinate campaigning across multiple organisations and their public supporter base.
  • Connecting and community-building, including (but not exclusively) physical convening, mentoring, or facilitating exchanges as part of establishing a stronger community of professional advocates and emerging leaders to SRHR.
  • Linking and learning to support stronger learning within SRHR advocacy communities. We will support learning activities such as the sharing of best practice and the production of evidence on advocacy impact and effectiveness of advocacy practice.
