The Fund for Global Human Rights was founded in 2003 to move human rights forward by providing resources and tools to the people and organizations on the ground that have real potential to generate positive change. Fund’s grants and technical assistance are focused on crucial and difficult work that otherwise might wane for lack of resources, bring financial stability to human rights groups, and help human rights defenders increase their visibility and impact.
The Fund has awarded over $50 million in grants to more than 300 on-the-ground human rights groups.
Types of Grants
- Regular Grants – Fund does not accept unsolicited grant proposals for regular funding. Grants range from $5,000 to $30,000 and provide largely unrestricted support to frontline groups working on a range of issues.
- Emergency Grants – Grants outside of regular funding cycle and beyond the eighteen focus countries where the Fund for Global Human Rights is working. These grants can help protect the security of activists under threat. Applicants seeking an emergency grant can contact the foundation via email.
- Donor-Advised Grants – Donor-advised grants outside regular funding cycle when requested by individual or institutional donors. These grants are generally made in special focus countries.
