Guidance for Funders
As a field, human rights funding aims to move money to those working to protect and advance human rights. Yet, among funders who share that value, we see that the practice does not always meet the vision.
HRFN – in collaboration with peer donor networks Ariadne–European Funders for Social Change and Human Rights and Gender Funders Co_Lab – has established the “Principles Project” to build a framework for how to enact a human rights approach to grantmaking and to challenge our networks to live up to a higher standard.
