Promotion Des Droits Humains: Mise À Jour Des Subventions Des Fondations Au Niveau Mondial

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 increased by 6 percent.

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.
