Advancing Human Rights Research & Mapping

HRFN’s Advancing Human Rights initiative is the first-ever analysis of the evolving state of global human rights philanthropy. In partnership with Foundation Center, we map the field to help funders and advocates alike identify gaps and trends and make more informed decisions in their work.Image displays graphic of our funder-only map which lets you view grant-level details, map your own funding, find new partners, and search at the intersection of multiple area,

The research has produced several tools to date:

  • Foundation Maps: Human Rights: explore the who, what, and where of human rights philanthropy. With data updated weekly, our funder-only map lets you view grant-level details, map your funding, find new partners, and search at the intersection of multiple areas
