How Amplifier Works

Amplifier Circle Management Overview

Giving Circle Directory & Organization Directory

These two directories showcase all of the giving circles and nonprofit organizations registered on the Amplifier website.

Colors signify focus areas of impact. Click through to learn more about or connect with a specific circle or a nonprofit grantseeker.

Filter to find exactly what you are looking for – giving circles and organizations of every shape and size, all over the world.

Grant Opportunities & Common Grant Applications

When a Giving Circle is ready to distribute funds, it posts a Grant Opportunity explaining what organizations can apply for. Applicants fill out a Common Grant Application, which is then viewable by all registered giving circles.

Nonprofit organizations can apply for multiple grants at once with a single Common Grant Application.

When creating a Grant Opportunity, circles can add up to 5 custom questions to the common application to reflect their specific grantmaking agenda.

Browse and filter through all posted Grant Opportunities

Giving Circle Management Tools

Once you've created your giving circle profile, use the circle management tools on your dashboard to manage giving circle operations.

Shortlists help circle members narrow down applicants for grants.

Polls enable your circle to canvas members' opinions on anything from meeting times to grant decisions.

Messaging and event tabs let your circle share important information with members in one central place.

While the Amplifier platform does not process your circle's grant directly, we can help you learn how to do this through one of our partners.
