Aligned with our initial theory of change that stated a commitment to “fund an ecosystem of groups and prioritize deep collaboration,” in 2021 we introduced collaboration grants. These grants support work that Amplify grantees are taking on with other trusted allies.
In 2021, Amplify granted $634,000 to 16 collaborations. in two rounds of funding. In spring 2021 (Round 1), we received 16 applications and funded 7 collaborations totaling $245,000. In fall 2021 (Round 2), we received 12 applications, and funded 9 collaborations totaling $389,000. Grants ranged between $24,000 - $50,000.
