Enabling important conversations and potential coordination or cooperation between funders is a huge challenge. I love that HRFN exists and creates such a space. Its programming is thoughtful and smart.
When you join our network, you become part of a vibrant community of funders eager to strengthen the impact and effectiveness of their funding. Human Rights Funders Network provides a variety of tools and platforms for members to deepen their human rights knowledge, connect with funders across the globe, and inform strategic decision-making in an evolving state of global human rights funding.
Our virtual and in-person events offer members the chance to explore critical human rights issues, share emerging strategies and hone grantmaking craft.
Members can join existing working groups focused on specific human rights issues, populations, and geographic regions as well as grantmaking practice–or launch new ones.
Beyond this, members have valuable opportunities to exercise leadership among peers, get involved in critical policy debates, and gain new perspectives on strategies for addressing human rights issues.
I love the newsletters! They are a very important resource for me to update myself about what’s going on in the human rights field and the larger philanthropic landscape.
