Once a call is closed no one can apply to that particular call, but I have never heard of a grants program that does not allow organizations that were not successful to apply for future rounds of funding. They should be able to re-apply, as there is no plan to allocate all auction proceeds in one go. As long as the criteria is met, that should not be an issue. 

It is very common to have a percentage of unsuccessful applicants re-applying. In our case, some organizations applied at least 3 times before they are granted funding. Considering the number of organizations that work around the objectives of this fund, that seems very likely. 

Successful applicants that have already received funding should -in my opinion- be able to request additional funding as well. Either for the same project or for a totally different one. That is done by most large donors to support scale-up and achieve impact for a solution that works, or to support organizations that are done really well on their reporting and outcomes, as impact takes time. But that is -again- a different subject. That is particularly important with large organizations such as universities, where funding can go to one department/faculty once and then to a different one in the future.

    I really do not think it is our job to tell people how to rewrite their 
    proposals so they can reapply.  (Will there even be a chance to reapply?)
    If we want to provide grant writing help, we should make that part of the 
    plan and not confuse it with the grant evaluation.
