Human Rights Funders Network (HRFN) and Candid are pleased to share their new analysis of the human rights funding landscape: Advancing Human Rights: Annual Review of Global Foundation Grantmaking – 2018 Key Findings.
In a year of global unrest, this report serves as a baseline and an offering to track trends in human rights funding. The findings, based on in-depth analysis of $3.7 billion in human rights funding, raise critical questions about where funding does and does not meet the needs of human rights movements around the world. The research sheds light on foundational issues, such as the link between health and racial justice, that have become ever-more visible in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read on to review key findings, access the full report, and amplify the research.
This research was made with contributions from Ariadne – European Funders for Social Change and Human Rights, and Prospera – International Network of Women’s Funds make to this research.
