    We review and evaluate grant applications on a rolling basis. After selecting finalists we vote for the winner. Criteria used to assess applications includes:
    • Your mission — Clearly stating how your project, business, or organization makes the world a better place
    • Current goals — Clearly stating your goals or priorities for the next six months. Are the goals specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound?
    • Plans for the grant money — Clearly stating how your project, business, or organization intends to use the funds.
    • Diversification of grant portfolio — We strive to award grants to a diverse group of projects, businesses, and organizations. This includes awarding to a range of entities diverse in organization size, annual budget, issues they’re tackling, tactics used, and more. We welcome applications from all with a strong belief that the people closest to the problems are the people closest to the solutions.

What are the eligibility requirements to apply for The Amplifier Grant? -

    Projects or organizations should be actively working on efforts to make the world a better place in the United States. Does this sound broad? Good, because it is! You could be a bakery or an afterschool program or more — if you’re making change, we want to hear about it. All entities ranging from high school projects, grassroots organizations, nonprofits, startups, businesses, and more are encouraged to apply.

May I reapply? -

    Yes, you can reapply but we encourage doing this when something significant has changed to your project/organization or circumstances that have positively impacted your work since your last application.

Why do you charge an application fee? -

    Simply put, the fee makes the Amplifier Grant — and the operations that come with it — possible. The application fee is non-refundable.
