  • About

    Has there been an unanticipated closure or widening of civic space that needs a timely response? Is there a time-bound opportunity to influence policy on criminalisation, marginalisation, discrimination, and/or exclusion? Is there a consensus among a consortium/ civil society network for a strategic action?

    If you answered yes to the questions above, apply for a Sudden Opportunity Grant! We accept proposals spanning 6 months to a maximum of 1 year, ranging from €5,000 to €200,000 (approx. ₱265,000 to ₱10,600,000).

    What is a sudden opportunity?
    Sudden opportunities can vary greatly, depending on the situation. They can however, be described through the common elements they share.

    • Sudden:
      These are unexpected moments, which happen without any warning. They could be a policy direction change for the government, a shift in public opinion, or a new court ruling with deep policy implications.
    • Collective Action:
      These unexpected moments require collective action. They require a response not just from one group but from several organizations such as a coalition, a consortium, or a network.
    • Immediate:
      These unexpected moments require immediate action. They temporarily create the right set of circumstances for making a change possible. The moment will eventually pass and the opportunity to make a change is lost.
    • Impact on Target Groups:
      These unexpected moments have to greatly impact at least one or more of Voice the target groups. They need to be involved in the collective action being proposed.
