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 defines human rights activities as those that seek to challenge the structures of power so that they defend, protect, and promote human rights. The Fund does not have thematic restrictions and supports organizations working to address a wide range of human rights problems. Examples of some of the recent grantees are- defend indigenous land rights in Guatemala, promote women’s rights in Morocco, and struggle for accountability for war crimes in West Africa.
The Fund has awarded over $50 million in grants to more than 300 on-the-ground human rights groups.
