Advancing Human Rights Annual Review of Global Foundation Grantmaking: 2017 Key Findings

June 25, 2020

With limited resources and immense challenges, now more than ever human rights grantmakers and advocates are asking critical questions about the human rights funding landscape: Where is the money going? What are the gaps? Who is funding what? The Advancing Human Rights research tracks the evolving state of human rights philanthropy by collecting and analyzing grants data to equip funders and advocates to make more informed and effective decisions. Human Rights Funders Network (HRFN) and Candid lead the research, in partnership with Ariadne–European Funders for Social Change and Human Rights, and Prospera–International Network of Women's Funds.In 2017, the research found that 849 foundations awarded 25,229 human rights grants totaling $3.2B to 13,819 recipients around the world, 28% of which was reported as flexible general support.

Advancing Human Rights: Update on Global Foundation Grantmaking, Key Findings - 2016 Edition

July 19, 2016

In 2013, foundations allocated $2.3 billion in support of human rights. The Advancing Human Rights initiative defines human rights grantmaking as funding in pursuit of structural change, often in support of marginalized populations, to advance rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and subsequent rights treaties. All grantmaking consistent with this definition was included in this research, including grants by funders who do not consider themselves to be human rights funders but who support work in intersecting fields. The 803 foundations included in this edition of Advancing Human Rights: Update on Global Foundation Grantmaking made 20,300 grants supporting human rights. These foundations range from the top-ranked Open Society Foundations, Ford Foundation, and Nationale Postcode Loterij, each reporting over $250 million in giving for human rights in 2013, to foundations awarding one or two human rights grants. This third annual report explores 2013 human rights grantmaking by funder, region, issue, population, and--for the first time--strategy. To provide a more complete picture of giving for human rights, this year's update also includes 2013 data on bilateral and multilateral aid. Advancing Human Rights: Update on Global Foundation Grantmaking also highlights key changes in foundation giving between 2012 and 2013. To control for year-to-year variations in the data set, the report limits this comparison to a set of 649 funders whose grants were included in the research for both 2012 and 2013. Among this matched subset, total grant dollars for human rights rose by 23 percent and the number of grants awarded inceased by 6 percent.

Esta es la primera alianza entre el Foundation Center (Centro de Fundaciones) y el International Human Rights Funders Group (Grupo Internacional de Donantes para los Derechos Humanos) para analizar el panorama de las donaciones a nivel global, destinadas al avance de los derechos humanos. Nuestra meta es reproducir esa información que contribuya a ilustrar el estado actual de los donativos otorgados por las fundaciones, sus alcances, prioridades y tendencias. Este reporte será útil no solo a los donantes que quieren establecer alianzas con otros donantes cuyo foco son los derechos humanos, sino a quienes buscan oportunidades para capacitarse y aprender, así como a organizaciones no gubernamentales (ONG) y sus aliados en el campo de los DDHH, a las organizaciones bilaterales y a las multilaterales.En suma, esta publicación ofrece, a todos aquellos interesados en el tema, una introducción al campo de los donativos para los derechos humanos.

L'avancee des Droits Humains

October 1, 2013

Le Foundation Center (le centre des fondations) et L´ International Human Rights Funders Group (groupe international de bailleurs de fonds pour les droits humains, IHRFG) ont collaboré sur ce tout premier examen des subventions mondiales dirigées aux droits humains. Notre objectif est de construire une compréhension du paysage actuel du soutien apporté aux fondations des droits humains puis s'amorcer le suivi de l'ampleur des évolutions, les priorités puis les tendances pour l'avenir. Les bailleurs de fonds cherchant des partenaires de financement des droits humains et des opportunités d'apprentissage, les organisations non gouvernementales (ONGs), les alliés travaillant dans le domaine des droits humains, et les organisations bilatérales et multilatérales qui entreprennent des efforts complémentaires pour les droits humains seront toutes bien servies par cette recherche. Pour ceux qui considèrent la relation droits humains-subventions pour la première fois, cette publication offre une introduction à ce champ particulièrement accessible.

Advancing Human Rights: The State of Global Foundation Grantmaking

June 20, 2013

Foundation funding for human rights comes from scores of large and small grantmakers located around the world.Some of these foundations are well known for their human rights focus, while others may think of themselves as "social justice" or "progressive social change" funders. Still other foundations do not explicitly support human rights or social change. But all of the foundations included in the Advancing Human Rights: The State of Global Foundation Grantmaking report share one commonality: they have made at least one recent grant for organizations or specific efforts that seek to advance human rights based on the human rights definition adopted for this report -- a definition consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the first United Nations declaration to outline the basic rights and fundamental freedoms to which all human beings are entitled. Many of the foundations in this study have made dozens or hundreds of grants to advance human rights.The Foundation Center and the International Human Rights Funders Group (IHRFG) have partnered on this first-ever examination of global human rights grantmaking. Our goal is to build understanding of the current landscape of foundation support for human rights and begin to track changes in its scale and priorities and trends going forward. Grantmakers seeking human rights funding partners and learning opportunities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and allies working in the human rights sphere, and bilateral and multilateral organizations undertaking complementary human rights endeavors will all be well served by this research. For those considering human rights-related grantmaking for the first time, this publication offers an accessible introduction to the field.Through the ongoing collaboration between the Foundation Center and IHRFG, with the assistance of Ariadne/European Human Rights Funders Network, the International Network of Women's Funds (INWF), and other grantmaker networks and individual foundations, the Advancing Human Rights initiative will provide knowledge resources to help secure and strengthen the rights of innumerable people around the world.
