Our Strategic grants support sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) activism at a global or regional level to ensure this activism is coordinated with and represents the grassroots.
Strategic grants build partnerships within the international SRHR movement to support local civil society in need of extra help. The grants spark fresh activism and facilitate the sharing of expertise and experience across borders. In an increasingly connected world, regional or global institutions play a large role in shaping policies and social norms. These global policies and norms influence SRHR advocacy opportunities at national or local community levels.
We offer a small number of Strategic grants based on funding availability. Each grant is worth up to EUR2 million over 24 months. Please see the specific eligibility criteria listed in the sections below for each Network grant call.
Grants are up to EUR1million per annum over two years
Maximum grant duration is up to two years
Strategic grants support organisations working on one or more of the SRHR priority themes of AmplifyChange

Applicants must have a proven track record and capability in advocating for SRHR. They need to be able to work across multiple regions around the world.
The annual value of a Strategic grant cannot exceed 50% of the organisation’s average annual expenditure over the past three years.
