Financial guidance

In this section you will find guides and templates to help you plan and manage the financial aspects of your AmplifyChange grant.

Our policy is to allow as much flexibility as possible in your financial management, but you must use our guides and templates when applying for a grant, budgeting, and reporting to us. This ensures that we receive the same information from all grantees.

Budgeting and reporting templates are the same for all grant types except Opportunity grants, which have simpler requirements because they are smaller.

Please note that many of these files are ‘read-only’ PDF documents for preview and guidance purposes only. We require all budget templates and financial reports to be downloaded from our online grant management system (SMILE), completed and uploaded back into the system.
