Human Rights Funding: Mapping the Who, What, and Where


Do you wish you had a simple way to:

  • See your foundation’s human rights and social justice funding mapped out by country, issue, or population?
  • Find potential grantees working at the intersection of key issues, such as access to justice and migration?
  • Identify funding partners supporting similar work, such as disability rights in Asia and the Pacific?

Join the Human Rights Funders Network (HRFN), hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and co-sponsored by Disability Rights Fund and New England International Donors, for a look at HRFN and Foundation Center’s Advancing Human Rights research and a funder-only tutorial on Foundation Maps: Human Rights, HRFN’s interactive map of human rights grantmaking.

The research and map let you explore grants focused on the issues, populations, and countries you care about most. Learn how these tools can help you understand the funding landscape for specific rights areas, find funding partners and potential grantees, and see how your institution fits within the overall field.

Register here. The event will be held at Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, 689 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA. Space is limited, so participation is limited to two representatives per institution. Additional staff members interested in joining will be added to a waitlist.

Please contact Sarah Tansey, Program Manager for Research & Policy at HRFN, with any questions.
