Human Rights Funders Network offers a variety of ways for members to explore a broad range of topics, share their learning and strategize together.

  • Webinars enable funders to explore timely human rights concerns and present grantmaking strategies.
  • In-person gatherings, such as conferences, institutes and strategy meetings, enable funders to strengthen their grantmaking practice, deepen their knowledge of emerging issues, and meet with others in the field.  
  • Learning visits bring funders to global destinations for experiential learning and to connect them with local civil society.
  • External events at conferences or peer funder network meetings offer members the chance to share knowledge and spark new collaborations.
