AmplifyChange Opportunity Grant Application 2023 Worldwide

Opportunity grants aim to nurture and encourage innovative ideas and approaches on SRHR advocacy in new contexts. They allow local, small civil society and grassroots organisations to drive the advocacy agenda and ensure change happens. 

For this Opportunity grant call, AmplifyChange seeks to fund civil society organisations that aim to implement projects focusing on sexual and reproductive health rights.  The duration of an Opportunity grant can be 18 or 24 months. This funding round is open for applications up to £75,000 GBP. We encourage you to be realistic and apply for the amount that is best for your organisation and project.

Rules and eligibility

Only civil society organisations from the Global South are eligible to apply. Your organisation must be located in, and implementing a project in one of Amplify Change’s eligible countries.  

Applicants must also be small to medium sized organisations with an average annual expenditure over the past two years of less than £200,000 per year. For example, if your expenditure in 2021 was £100,000 GBP, and in 2022 it was £350,000, the average would be £225,000 – this would mean you would not be eligible to apply. You will be asked to submit evidence for your expenditure values. This could be an audited report or a profit and loss statement. 

They recognise the broad scope of civil society and the wide range of organisations, actors and coalitions it encompasses.  Civil Society Organisations can include:
